Over the years, employers have experienced the expanding requirement for electronic reporting. Gone are the days of paper submissions and the EEOC has followed that same path. Is your company able to comply with the electronic reporting?

If you are a public employer with over 100 employees, you are familiar with the EEO-1 data collection report. Did you know that if you have a contract with the federal government of at least $50,000 and at least 50 employees, you too are required to file the EEO-1 data collection report?

Several years ago, the EEO-1 added Component 2 to the data collection. Greenshades was here to assist you with the additional gathering of information. Today, for tax years 2019 and 2020, Component 2 is no longer required; and the harvesting of data to complete Component 1 of the EEO-1 report can be easy as pie when you use Greenshades Software.

Here at Greenshades, we track the window that is available to upload your report. We have the file format that is required along with the requested information that goes into the report. We know the time frame to submit the report and the requirements to remain compliant.

Now, dig out those calculators to see how cost effective it is to have Greenshades handle the generation of the EEO-1 report. How long would it take you to gather and parse the information into the EEO-1 report? We not only have the ability to look at your data but also to organize it appropriately into a cohesive report that is able to be submitted electronically. Gone are the stresses and time commitments when you allow Greenshades to handle this task for you.

The window is currently open. On April 26, 2021, the EEOC started accepting the data collection. The window has been extended and will now close on Monday, August 23, 2021.

Greenshades has made it very easy to input your information by creating an EEO Wizard, which will walk you through all the important aspects of the process. See the screenshots below for more information.

And, of course, our first class support is ready if you run into any issues throughout the process.
