In response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request from the Center for Investigative Reporting, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) is preparing to release the 2016–2020 EEO-1 Type 2 (Consolidated) reports of federal contractors that did not previously object to disclosure. OFCCP’s List of Non-Objectors identifies more than 13,000 entities whose EEO-1 reports OFCCP plans to release in response to the FOIA request.
Entities on the non-objector list can still object to OFCCP’s release of this information via email until 11:59 p.m. on February 7, 2023. Entities are eligible to lodge an objection to disclosure if they can provide supporting information that they were not a federal contractor during the relevant period or they previously submitted an objection to the release of their Type 2 reports.
Ogletree Deakins’ Affirmative Action and OFCCP Compliance Practice Group will continue to monitor developments with regard to EEO-1 Type 2 reporting and will update the Affirmative Action / OFCCP and Government Contractors blogs as additional information becomes available. Important information for employers is also available via the firm’s webinar and podcast programs.
