NT Lakis lawyers submitted comprehensive written comments last week to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) in response to the agency’s controversial proposal revising the Employer Information (EEO-1) Report to collect summary compensation data from covered employers.

Our comment letter complements the testimony delivered by Mike Eastman, NT Lakis Of Counsel, at a rare public hearing held by the EEOC on March 17.  Our letter details the serious flaws of the Commission’s proposal, including the substantial reporting burdens that employers would bear in providing data we believe will be of little use to the EEOC in actually identifying pay discrimination.

Also recognizing that the EEOC seems determined to proceed with some form of pay collection instrument, our comments offer a number of recommendations for revising the current proposal to lessen the burden on employers.
