8/3/2007 - Certain employers are required to file an annual EEO-1 Report. For the first time this year, the government is sending out reminders to employers whom they think may be required to file. Some employers who have received this reminder are actually not required to file.

If you have a question about this, please call Seay Management and we will guide you through this labyrinth. If you are required to file, we will be glad to help.

*What Is The EEO-1 Report And The VETS 100 Report?

The EEO-1 Report is an analysis of your workforce, listed by EEO-1 category (these are specific designations provided by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission), race and sex. In some cases, multiple EEO-1 Reports are required, where an employer has multiple locations and/or a separate corporate headquarters.

*Who Is Required To Complete These Reports?

These reporting requirements apply at two levels. First, every employer who employs 100 or more employees must complete the reports. Second, every employer who is (a) covered by the Affirmative Action requirements and who has (b) 50 or more employees, must complete the reports.

Special Note For Financial Institutions – The government regards banks and other financial institutions as government contractors. Thus, every bank or financial institution that has 50 or employees must have an Affirmative Action Plan and must complete these reports.

*Where Do You Get The Forms And Where Do You Send The Reports?

The forms must be filed with a federal agency called the Joint Reporting Commission and they may be filed either hard copy or on line. The URL to file on line is If you have previously filed a hard copy EEO-1 Report, you should receive a 2005 Form in the mail; if you filed electronically, your user name and password should be emailed to you (double check this, however, as we know of occasions where this has not occurred). The address is:

EEO-1 Joint Reporting Committee

P.O. Box 19100

Washington, DC 20036-9100
