Many small business owners, who are required to submit an EEO-1 report, are asking if they are required to submit a report for each employee location. Our Human Resources consultants have the following answer.

It depends. A company with only one physical address (single-establishment) is only required to submit one EEO-1 data report. Companies with more than one physical address (multi-establishments) are required to submit a separate report for the headquarters, a separate report for each location with 50 or more employees, and a separate report for each establishment with fewer than 50 employees.

In addition, multi-establishment employers must submit a consolidated report that includes all employees. All EEO-1 reports must be submitted and certified no later than March 31, 2018.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) provides general guidance to assist you in determining how to count your employees for the purpose of EEO-1 reporting on their EEO-1 Frequently Asked Questions and Answers page.
