The Component 2 filing website has also been updated with the following message:

In a September 27, 2019 Status Report that was filed in the lawsuit discussing post-September 30th activities, the EEOC stated that so long as the Court’s order is in effect stating that the collection will not be complete until it reaches what the Court has determined to be the target response rate, the EEOC will continue to accept Component 2 data for 2017 and 2018. EEO-1 eligible employers should continue to submit and certify their Component 2 EEO-1 reports for 2017 and 2018 as soon as possible.
