Fast Facts About Pay Data Report

  • Who has to file?

    Employers with 100 or more employees and who are required to file an annual Employer Information Report (EEO-1) under federal law.

  • When is the report due?

    The first report is due on March 31, 2021, with data for the 2020 reporting year. OutSolve recommends preparing now so data can be collected, assessed, and organized in the required file format. The report will be submitted annually thereafter on or before March 31 of each year.

    • By race, ethnicity, and sex
    • In each of the job categories in the federal EEO-1 report
    • Whose annual earnings fall within each of the pay bands used by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics in the Occupational Employment Statistics Survey
