Affirmative Action for Individuals With Disabilities in the Federal Government
Document Number: 2016-03530
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-02-24
Agency: Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (``EEOC'' or ``Commission'') proposes to amend its regulations requiring the federal government to engage in affirmative action for individuals with disabilities. These changes will clarify the obligations that the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 imposes on federal agencies as employers, in addition to the obligation not to discriminate on the basis of disability. An initial economic analysis indicates that the regulations will have a moderate economic impact of less than $100 million per year on federal agencies. Because the proposed regulation does not apply to the private sector, it will have no impact, economic or otherwise, on private businesses.

Document Number: 2016-01544
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-02-01
Agency: Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Agencies and Commissions
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 a revised Employer Information Report (EEO-1) data collection. This revised data collection has two components. Component 1 collects the same data that is gathered by the currently approved EEO-1: Specifically, data about employees' ethnicity, race, and sex, by job category. Component 2 collects data on employees' W-2 earnings and hours worked, which EEO-1 filers already maintain in the ordinary course of business. For the 2016 reporting cycle, all EEO-1 filers would submit the data under Component 1. Starting in 2017, filers with 100 or more employees (both private industry and Federal contractor) would submit data in response to both Components 1 and 2. Contractors with 50 to 99 employees would only submit data for Component 1. In this notice, the EEOC solicits public comment on the utility and burden of collecting pay and hours- worked data through the EEO-1 data collection process.
