W&G Regulatory Advisory: Filing Deadline for FCC Form 395 is Thursday, May 31

May 29, 2012

FCC Form 395, the Common Carrier Annual Employment Report, must be filed this Thursday, May 31.

Form 395  is required of all FCC licensees or permittees of common carrier stations with 16 or more full-time employees. Resellers typically are not licensees or permittees subject to sections 1.815, 21.307, 22.321, or 23.55 of the Commission’s rules. In addition, discrimination reports must be filed by all licensees or permittees, regardless of the number of employees, in accordance with sections 21.307(d), 22.321( c), and 23.55(d) of the Commission’s rules. The discrimination complaint requirement can be satisfied by completing Section V of FCC Form 395, instead of by submission of a separate report.
