Information in this document applies to any platform.
The reporting requirements for EEO-4 reporters (State agencies) are changing to mirror the reporting requirements of EEO-1, EEO-3 and EEO-5 reporters. Basically if a person identifies with multiple ethnic groups/races and one of those ethnic groups is Hispanic, then the employee is counted as Hispanic. If none of the groups is Hispanic, then the employee is counted as "Two or More Races". The EEO-4 job code categories are remaining the same. Below is an excerpt from the EEOC website:
NOTE: The category "HISPANIC", while not a race identification, is included as a separate race/ethnic category because of the employment discrimination often encountered by this group; for this reason do not include HISPANIC under either "white" or "black".
For the purposes of the report, the following race/ethnic categories will be used:
a.White (not of Hispanic origin): All persons having origins in any of the original peoples of Europe, North Africa, or the Middle East.
b.Black (not or Hispanic origin): All persons having origins in any of the Black racial groups of Africa.
c.Hispanic: All persons of Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Central or South American, or other Spanish culture or origin, regardless of race.
d.Asian or Pacific Islander: All persons having origins in any of the original peoples of the Far East, Southeast Asia, the Indian Subcontinent, or the Pacific Islands. This area includes, for example, China, India, Japan, Korea, the Philippine Islands, and Samoa.
e.American Indian or Alaskan Native: All persons having origins in any of the original peoples of North America, and who maintain cultural identification through tribal affiliation or community recognition.
