President’s Letter



Welcome! Wasn’t the On the Cutting Edge meeting a good one?! We had six great speakers and some good networking and of course, no one can forget the word board… thank you John, it is fantastic! And the Wounded Warrior Project, our second quarter community cause, got off to a big start thanks to all of you… we raised $560.00 for it and we still have two months to go. Please feel free to bring some extra money to June’s meeting because we will be continuing the 50/50 raffle to raise money for this great cause.  At our June meeting, we will be focusing on Veterans.

As always, if I can do anything to support you, please let me know.

See you on Wednesday!

Legislative Update:


Ogletree Deakins


As you have probably heard, U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia Judge Tanya S. Chutkan ordered the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) to collect two years of EEO-1 Component 2 pay data including 2018 and pay data from either 2017 or 2019. On May 1, 2019, the EEOC chose to collect 2017 pay data in addition to the 2018 pay data collection previously announced. According to the EEOC, employers must file this data by September 30, 2019. The announcement regarding 2017 pay data is expected to be published in the Federal Register on May 3, 2019.

Practically speaking, the EEOC’s announcement means that employers will need to gather 2017 and 2018 pay data for filing. The EEOC stated that it expects to begin collecting the 2017 and 2018 Component 2 data in mid-July 2019. As of this writing, the EEOC had not yet notified filers of the precise date the Component 2 data survey will open.

The EEOC also shortened the length of EEO-1 Component 1 filing extensions. Previously, employers were allowed to request a single 30-day extension for filing Component 1 information, which is due by May 31, 2019. On May 1, 2019, the EEO-1 website was updated to show that employers may now only request a single 14-day extension of the 2018 EEO-1 report deadline to June 14, 2019. According to the EEO-1 website, companies requesting an extension beyond two-weeks must summarize the issue the company is experiencing and communicate with the Employer Data Team.

There is still the potential that an appeal could delay or stop the September 30, 2019, pay data collection requirement.  We will keep you posted about any changes
