Canadian businesses with operations in the United States should be aware that the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) recently unveiled its amended proposal to collect summary pay data from employers with 100 or more employees. Under the proposed amendments, employers who already file an Employer Information Report (EEO-1) will be required to also report pay to U.S. employees by gender, race, and ethnicity, across 12 pay bands, by March 31, 2018. Covered employers should start considering now how to adjust their pay, collection, and reporting processes for their U.S. operations.
