Statement on OMB Action on EEO-1

August 30, 2017

Washington – Business Roundtable today released the following statement from Joshua Bolten, President and CEO, supporting action by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) regarding the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC) requirement that employers submit pay data on revised report forms beginning in 2018.

"Business leaders are committed to an inclusive and diverse workforce. Unfortunately, the original EEOC rule did not generate useful information on discrimination while imposing a costly burden on employers, ultimately harming workers. We continue to support meaningful efforts to improve equality in the workplace. We also support ongoing efforts by the OMB to improve regulations to positively impact all workers.”
