Read about the new Draft Amendments to Employment Equity!
Quoting slow progress since the introduction of Employment Equity regulations, it seems the Department of Labour will be introducing a stern approach to driving transformation. EconoBEE has ascertained the following:
- Numerical targets will be set by the department and these will be specific to your economic sector. Previously, companies set numerical targets themselves.
- The draft does provide relief for certain companies in that employers with less than 50 employees will no longer be required to report annually, no matter what the turnover is.
- An Employment Equity Certificate of Compliance will be required if you are bidding for government contracts.
