New Ruling Enforces Employer Pay Data Reporting

Earlier this month, a Washington, D.C. U.S. District Court withdrew a prior stay on the Obama-era revised EEO-1 reporting requirements which mandate impacted employers to disclose W-2 wage information.

Human Resources Executive says “most private employers with 100 or more employees will once again have to gather and submit compensation information broken down by race, sex, and ethnicity in the very near future”.

According to Fisher Phillips, it is not yet known if the 2018 EEO-1 reports will need to include this compensation information or if employers will be given a reprieve:

“Whether this could come in the form of a delayed reporting timeframe or a delay in the revised report until next year is uncertain.”

Human Resources Executive further encourages employers to review their current pay practices to identify any areas of pay inequities.
