The EEO-1 Survey is now open, and companies may file their 2015 reports. Normally, filing opens on July 1; however the 2015 opening was delayed due to technical difficulties. The VETS-4212 reporting opened on time on August 1.
According to the website, the following changes have taken place:
- Companies may now obtain and reset their passwords;
- Company locations with the same address and NAISC code will need to consolidate those locations into one record; and
- The requirement to provide the Employer Identification Number (EIN) for each establishment location will be more carefully monitored.
Companies that filed an EEO-1 report in 2014 should receive the 2015 notification letter by mail no later than the end of August 2015.
The filing deadline for both of these reports is September 30. However, MSEC recommends filing sooner as response time from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Veterans’ Employment & Training Service slows as the deadline approaches.
If the individual responsible for filing the EEO-1 report has changed since the 2014 filing cycle, you will have to request a change to your Contact Person E-mail. You can do this by sending the EEOC a signed change request on company letterhead with the name, title, phone number and e-mail address of the new contact person at your company. The change must be signed by an authorized company representative in order for the request to be processed. The request should be e-mailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org. The new EEO-1 contact will receive an e-mail with login and password information once your change request has been submitted.
You are required to file a VETS-4212 report if you have a federal contract that you entered into or modified after 12/1/2003 that is worth $100,000 or more.
