Employment Equity submission window period opens 1 September 2019 to 15 January 2020

In our previous newsletter we touched on the disconnect between Management Control and Employment Equity. In this newsletter, though, we are reminding you that the Employment Equity report submission window period to the DoL runs from the 1st of September 2019 to 15 January 2020.

Designated employers (companies, government departments) are obliged to submit every year to the DoL, as per the Employment Equity Act. This includes their employment equity reports in relation to demographic profiles, gender representation and employment equity plans on how to address discrimination and inequity in the workplace.

If you qualify as a Designated Employer and either: Supply incorrect information, do not comply with the Employment Equity Act requirements, or do not submit the documents on time, then the following could occur:

  • You may be fined heavily by the DoL – up to 10% of turnover depending on the severity of contravention.
  • The DoL may visit you and do a full audit on your company.

Of interest in EE related news, is the Black Management Forum (BMF) establishing a litigation fund with the aim of taking legal action against “gross violations derailing transformation in South Africa”. BMF also says that the fund will “serve as a tool to enforce transformation in an effort to achieve justice, fairness and equity”. See the full article here.

As mentioned in our previous newsletter, we have a series of upcoming workshops that will help you gain a better understanding of the Employment Equity Act and the importance of the Employment Equity report submission to the DoL. Our team of highly qualified consultants at EconoBEE are ready to assist with the submissions to the DoL during this submission period.
