The Labor Day holiday means . . .

Football? Absolutely.
Leaves changing colors? Eventually.

Closer to the World Series? If you're into that.

Cooler weather for my runs? Thankfully.

But for most employers, the holiday means that time is running out to gather the data for filing your EEO-1 report. If you are a private employer and fit into one of these categories, then you are required to file your EEO-1 each year by September 30:

1. Covered by Title VII, with at least 100 employees (some exclusions may apply)
2. Covered by Title VII, with fewer than 100 employees but you are affiliated with or owned by a company when taken with your employee population would put you over the 100 employee threshold
3. Have federal contracts of at least $50,000 (including subcontracts and purchase orders) and at least 50 employees
4. Serve as a depository of Government funds in any amount
5. Are a financial institution which is an issuing and paying agent for U.S. Savings Bonds and Notes.

As a reminder: your employees should be identifying themselves by the race/ethnicity codes modified in 2006 and first used with the EEO-1 last year. Additionally, you should be classifying your job groups by the Officials and Managers subsets that were modified also in 2006 and used in last year's EEO-1.

Happy counting!
