EEO-1 Survey for 2013

EEO-1 Survey for 2013

Private  Sector Employers Must Provide Workforce Data to EEOC by Sept. 30

WASHINGTON -- The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)  announced today that it has completed its mailing of the 2013 EEO-1 survey Notification  Letters. The EEO-1 is an annual survey  that requires all private employers with 100 or more employees, and federal government contractors or first-tier subcontractors with 50 or more employees and a contract or subcontract of $50,000 or more, to file the EEO-1  report. The filing of the EEO-1 report  is not voluntary, but is required by federal law. The filing deadline this year is Sept. 30,  2013.

The EEO-1 report provides valuable employment data by  race/ethnicity, gender and job categories, and is used by researchers, private  attorneys and human resource staff as well as in the EEOC's enforcement of  Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.

Employers who meet the criteria listed above and have not  received the 2013 EEO-1 Notification Letter by the end of July 2013 should  immediately contact the EEO-1 Joint Reporting Committee at 866-286-6440  (toll-free) or e-mail at e1.techassistance@eeoc.gov. They may also contact the EEO-1 Joint  Reporting Committee if the company filed the EEO-1 report in 2012 and they did  not receive the 2013 EEO-1 Notification Letter.  If anyone has any questions about the EEO-1  survey, they should contact the EEO-1 Joint Reporting Committee at 866-286-6440  (toll-free) or by e-mail at e1.techassistance@eeoc.gov.
"This year we  are stressing efforts to make it easier for employers to file by enhancing our  website and developing more technical assistance guidance," pointed out Deidre  M. Flippen, director of the EEOC's Office of Research, Information and Planning  (ORIP). "We are prepared to assist  employers meet the Sept. 30 deadline."

Pennsyvlania Unemployment Insurance Change

There are some changes that mandate a revise poster to be posted.  Many changes are made that do not effect the laws and regulations and therefore do not require an employer to immediately reflect the newest revised posting.  Even though these Minor changes do not mandate a company update their postings, many employers update as often as possible to ensure no fines will come.

The Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry, Office of Unemployment Compensation Benefits has removed some minor information from its Unemployment Insurance posting that is required for all private employers.  There was no change to any laws or regulations and therefore is a Minor change. The posting also reflects the revision date of April 2013.

California Labor Law Poster - FMLA

The most common question asked to ensure accurate Labor Law Posters is "Do you have fewer than 50 employees, or do you have 50 or more?"  This question is asked to ensure the California Labor Law Poster is shipped with the correct CA Family Medical Leave Act posting for your facility.  The Federal Labor Law Poster contains the Federal Family Medical Leave Act posting but the state of California Department of Fair Employment and Housing has also provided a posting specific for pregnant employees.

If an employer has between 5 and 50 employees, they are bound by law to provide certain rights to pregnant individuals.  Many Labor Law Poster suppliers do not ask this question and therefore compromise employers compliance with the laws of California.  If this question is not satisfied, the incorrect posting could be published for employees, and the individual postings do not have any identification as to whether the rights apply to the larger employers or not.

To ensure you have the correct updated postings for the state of California, please contact National Safety Compliance Customer Service at 1-877-922-7233
