Type of Review: Extension—No change.

Collection Title: Recordkeeping and Reporting under Title VII and the ADA.

Form No.: None.

Frequency of Report: Other.

Type of Respondent: Employers with 15 or more employees.

Description of Affected Public: Employers with 15 or more employees are subject to Title VII and the ADA.

Responses: 627,000.

Reporting Hours: None.

Federal Cost: None.

Number of Forms: None.

Abstract: Section 709 of Title VII, 42 U.S.C. 2000e and section 107(a) of the ADA, 42 U.S.C. 12117 require the Commission to establish regulations pursuant to which employers subject to those Acts shall make and preserve certain records to assist the EEOC in assuring compliance with the Acts' nondiscrimination requirements in employment.

This is a recordkeeping requirement. Any of the records maintained which are subsequently disclosed to the EEOC during an investigation are protected from public disclosure by the confidentiality provisions of section 706(b) and 709(e) of Title VII, by incorporation, section 107(a) of the ADA.

Burden Statement: The EEOC estimates that there will be no increased burden on employers. All employers subject to Title VII are also subject to the ADA, and the same EEOC records retention requirements are applicable to both. As all employers with 15 or more employees are already required by the EEOC's Title VII regulations on recordkeeping to maintain the same records, and the extension does not require reports or the creation or maintenance of new documents, there is no increased burden.
