The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) requires employers (including dealerships) with more than 100 employees to file annually an Employer Information Report (EEO-1). On April 12, 2022, the EEOC began to formally notify EEO-1 filers via email of their obligation to file data for 2021. Covered dealerships should begin preparing now to submit their 2021 EEO-1 data by the May 17, 2022 deadline and must also display an “EEO is the Law” poster.

The 2021 EEO-1 asks for the number of employees sorted by job category, race, ethnicity and gender. Resources to assist filers with submissions are available at An EEOC Filer Support Team also is available to respond to filer inquiries and to provide filing assistance. General questions on the 2021 EEO-1 reporting mandate can be directed to NADA Regulatory Affairs at [email protected].
