Have you read: The 21st CEE Report?

The 21st Commission of Employment Equity Report has been issued and it shed light on some Employment Equity developments. These are also in line with the Draft Amendment Bill that is still being reviewed in parliament.

As expected, the report has updated EAP targets which are useful in the quantitative analysis of each management level. These have changed slightly from last year:

The commission has consulted most of the business sectors to set sectorial targets. The finance and business sector has finalised the discussions. Based on these developments, all designated employers should be proactive and review their EEA12 and EEA13 to be prepared.

More changes are yet to come; give us a call to find out how best you can stay compliant with Employment regulations.

  1. You don’t have to sell your company shares in order for you to earn points on the ownership scorecard. The B-BBEE codes allow for various means in which to earn points on ownership.
  2. There are tax benefits that you can claim through specific forms of skills development. Let us show you how.
  3. Long term strategies for enterprise and supplier development ensure you will earn points over several years regardless of unexpected changes to your NPAT.
  4. The Amendment to the Employment Equity Act, which was recently released, has far stricter penalties for employers who don’t take EE seriously. Employers that don’t comply can expect strict enforcement and harsher penalties – fines of up to R2. 7mil or 10% of annual turnover.
  5. You can maximize on the skills development scorecard without having to meet the target spend.
  6. For absorption points you do not have to absorb all the learners trained to claim your skills development. Let us show you how this can be achieved.
