EEO-1 Filing Extended to May 31, 2019

Due to the partial government shutdown, the 2018 EEO-1 filing portal will open “in early March” for filing of 2018 reports.  As a result of the delayed opening, EEOC has extended the filing deadline by two months.  

Reminder, passwords are changed each year. If you have changed your certifying official or had a merger/acquisition/divestiture, there are steps you must take prior to filing your report.

Focused Review Update: 

OFCCP to look at Disabled and Vets compliance

Last August, the OFCCP issued a new Directive (DIR 2018-04), stating it would conduct “Focused Reviews” that centered on compliance with AAP requirements under Section 503 (Individuals with Disabilities) and VEVRAA (Veterans).

The next round of CSALs, approximately 500, will include notices for these more limited Focused Reviews under Section 503. 


There is a revised Scheduling Letter for Focused Reviewswhich is just a pared down version of the previous form for your review.  

ACTION ITEM:  Continue to work on your outreach program for Vets and Disabled! 



Our founder, Terri Swain, will be speaking at the EEOC's Technical Assistance Program on August 7th in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

Mark your calendars....more details to come!
