Breaking: Pay Data Reporting Due September 30, 2019

Posted on Apr 25, 2019

According to a federal judge’s ruling today, employers with 100 or more workers and certain federal contractors must turn over 2018 pay data to the EEOC by September 30, 2019.  Pay data must be sorted based on sex, ethnicity, and race.

Employers will also be required to provide pay data for either 2017 or 2019, but this issue is currently unresolved because the court afforded the EEOC an opportunity to select the second year for which it will collect pay data at a later date.  We anticipate the EEOC will make its selection next week and update the public via its website and a press release.

Given the fast-approaching deadline for compliance and the possibility of an appeal — which could impact these deadlines — employers are urged to follow legal developments in this area carefully.  If you have questions regarding pay data reporting requirements, contact the ZSWS lawyer with whom you regularly work or Joshua B.
