This month, we’d like to remind our colleagues in Human Resources about a very important deadline: Submit Form EEO -1 to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) by September 30, 2012.
What’s EEO-1? This report tracks your dealership’s workforce by gender, ethnicity and job groupings. You must submit it if you have 100 or more employees, including both full-time and part-time. Companies with fewer than 100 employees must also file if the company is owned by, or corporately affiliated with, another company and the entire enterprise employs a total of 100 or more employees
Why is this report important? It’s the law. Avoid the hassles and expense of dealing with “show cause letters” or a court order (and the perception that you have something to hide in terms of possible workforce discrimination). Federal contractors who do not file an EEO-1 report will face complete debarment from accepting future government contracts.
How do I gather the data? Pull the information from any pay period between July and September, 2012. KPA’s HR Management Software clients can easily collect the data and create the report using our system, then upload it to the EEOC website. KPA clients, call us at 866-539-4718 if you have any questions.
