What is an EEOP Short Form?
The Office for Civil Rights (OCR) has developed the EEOP Short Form to help recipients comply with the EEOP regulations. Instead of requiring recipients to report all of the employment data that the federal regulations require recipients to keep (see 28 C.F.R. § 42.301-.308), OCR uses the EEOP Short Form to prompt recipients to collect and analyze key employment data, organized by race, national origin, and sex. The OCR also uses the EEOP Short Form as an initial screening tool. If the OCR’s review of an agency’s EEOP Short Form indicates that a more thorough examination of employment practices may be appropriate, the OCR may request that the recipient provide additional employment data that the EEOP regulations require.
