Investigative Reporters Are Still Looking for Your EEO Data – Is Your Company On The List?
In a prior article in this publication we advised you that a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request had been made by the Center for Investigative Reporting for all Type 2 Consolidated Employer Information Reports, Standard Form 100 (EEO–1 Report), filed by federal contractors for a five year period from 2016–2020. As we explained, an EEO-1 Type 2 report is one of several different types of reports that “multi-establishment” employers must file annually, which consists of a consolidated report of demographic data for all employees categorized by race/ethnicity, sex, and job category at all locations of the organization, including its headquarters. The OFCCP provided multiple notices to all concerned and established a deadline for contractors to file an objection. That deadline was subsequently extended. Many contractors filed objections.
Recently, OFCCP compiled a list of all entities that, according to the agency’s records, were federal contractors that submitted Type 2 EEO-1 data between 2016-2020 and had not submitted an objection to the release of their data. This alphabetical list is available at the following link and is quite extensive: List of Non-Objectors. The deadline for contractors on the non-objectors list to respond to OFCCP was February 7, 2023, and this deadline has now been extended to February 17, 2023.
OFCCP is requesting that all federal contractors consult the posted list, if you have not already done so, and promptly respond if you believe that your entity is incorrectly included on the list. The contact information for OFCCP is: National FOIA Office, Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs, U.S. Department of Labor, Helpdesk Number: 1-800-397-6251, Email: OFCCP-FOIA-EEO1-Questions@dol.govhe.
