Update: Sage Support for EEO-1 Component 2 Reporting
August 13, 2019
Mary van Balen
As mentioned in an earlier post, Sage ensured their customers that they would be able to file their EEO-1 Component 2 on time. According to a recent update, Sage has already provided the necessary template for their HR only clients and will release an update in September that will address the filing requirements for their clients using both HR and Payroll.
Sage HR ONLY clients
For those Sage Abra Suite 9.2 and Sage HRMS 2017 customers with only HR implemented and using another Payroll product, a .cvs Import Template is already available. The Import Template and the Template Instructions can be found within Sage Knowledgebase Article ID 97142.
Sage instructs you to contact your payroll provider and ensure the data required for the EEO-1 Component 2 report can be exported from the payroll product for 2017 and 2018. Also, you should inform your payroll provider that Sage has provided a template for the import of the payroll data, meeting the government final efiling requirements.
Sage HR AND Payroll clients
For all Sage HRMS and Sage Abra Suite clients using both HR and Payroll (supported versions only), an update will be released on 9.06.2019 that will include all of the new EEO-1 changes.
If you visit the Component 2 EEO-1 Online Filing System home page, you’ll find links to access the help materials. (The LOGIN to File link is also located on this page.) Clicking on More Info will navigate to a page with multiple links to the posted documents which include the following:
On the home page you will also find a link to Frequently Asked Questions. For additional information, you can call the Help Desk or submit your questions via email. System login information should have been received earlier as it was sent to employers via USPS letter and email on July 15, 2019.

Not every employer is required to report Component 2 compensation data. See the list below for details:

The “workforce snapshot period” is an employer-selected pay period between October 1 and December 31 of the reporting year. (From FAQ)
