NT Lakis Partner Mike Eastman was one of several invited witnesses who presented testimony last week to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) at a public hearing held by the agency on its proposal to renew Component 1 of the Employer Information (EEO-1) Report while not seeking renewal of Component 2.

Six organizations were invited to testify regarding the EEOC’s proposed plan, and Mr. Eastman expressed support for renewal of Component 1 reporting while endorsing the EEOC’s decision to not seek renewal of Component 2 at this time. He also offered some recommendations on how the agency might develop a more effective pay data collection tool.

Prepared statements of all the witnesses are available on the EEOC’s website, along with a transcript of the hearing.
