February 1 is the deadline for broadcast stations licensed to communities in several states including New York and New Jersey to place their Annual EEO Public File Report in their Public Inspection File and post the report on their station website. Remember the reporting requirements apply to radio and television stations with 5 or more full time employees. In these reports the FCC will require you to report your outreach efforts with respect to the following areas:
- Broadly and inclusively disseminate information about every full-time job opening, except in exigent circumstances,
- Send notifications of full-time job vacancies to referral organizations that have requested such notification, and
- Earn a certain minimum number of EEO credits, based on participation in various non-vacancy-specific outreach initiatives
