Official Time in Federal Sector Cases Before the Commission

Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-12-11

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC or Commission) proposes amending its rule covering official time for representatives who are employees of the federal government.

In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA), the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC or Commission) announces that it intends to submit to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request for a three-year PRA approval of Component 1 of the Employer Information Report (EEO-1).

The EEOC does not intend to submit to OMB a request to renew Component 2 under OMB control number 3046- 0007. The EEO-1 Component 1 collections for 2016, 2017, and 2018 under the 3046-0007 control number have been completed. However, the EEO-1 Component 2 collections for 2017 and 2018 are now underway under this same control number, and as discussed in National Women's Law Center, et al. v. Office of Management and Budget, et al., Component 2 approval under control number 3046-0007 will expire no later than April 5, 2021, by order of the court. The EEOC believes a new OMB control number for Component 1 that is separate from the current control number for the Component 2 collection will minimize confusion for EEO-1 filers.
