FCC Form 396-C Cable EEO Deadline Extended to October 2, 2023
The Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) Media Bureau has extended the 2023 deadline for video/cable TV providers to file FCC Form 396-C, Cable EEO Annual Report, to October 2. The Form must be filed via the EEO filing portal in the Cable Operations and Licensing System (COALS). It also has released the names of those cable operators selected to complete the Supplemental Investigation Sheet (SIS), which requires additional information.
If you have six or more full-time cable employees (those who spend at least 30 hours per week on cable operations), you must file the Form 396-C by the October 2 deadline.
If you have fewer than six full-time cable employees and have in the past filed a Form 396-C to indicate you are under that threshold, no further filing is needed. If you have initiated cable service within the last year and have never filed this form, JSI recommends that you file the form once to establish that you have fewer than six full-time cable employees.
For additional information or questions concerning the FCC Form 396-C, please contact Kim Waldvogel or call 301-459-7590.
