It seems the end has finally come for at least one part of the pay data reporting story. Today, Judge Chutkan ordered the EEO-1 Component 2 pay data reporting portal closed. The closing of the portal signals the end of the required collection of pay data for 2017 and 2018 from eligible employers.

The direction for the next turn in the story hinges on what EEOC decides to do about collecting pay data going forward. Stay tuned.
