ANCOR is sharing this story by Politico as an update to this earlier article:

“EXPANDED EEO-1 DUE SEPTEMBER 30: A federal judge on Thursday gave the EEOC until September 30 to collect expanded pay data broken down by race, ethnicity, and gender, POLITICO’s Rebecca Rainey reports. In March, U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan overturned a Trump administration stay of an Obama-era policy that required all companies with more than 100 employees to submit the data, on the grounds that the stay violated the Administrative Procedures Act. Judge Chutkan’s March order reinstated the Obama EEOC’s expanded EEO-1 form, which was introduced in 2016 to help the EEOC and the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs ‘better focus investigations on employers who are illegally shortchanging workers’ pay based on their gender, race, or ethnicity.’

In Thursday’s ruling, Judge Chutkan extended the submission deadline, at the Trump administration’s request, from May 31 to September 30. She also ordered the EEOC to collect two years’ worth of data, as would have occurred had the collection not been stayed. ‘Today was a major victory for equal pay,’ Robin Thurston, senior counsel for Democracy Forward, one of the plaintiffs in the lawsuit, told Morning Shift in an emailed statement. ‘At every turn, the Trump administration has acted unlawfully to protect big business over women and American workers.’ More here.”
