The draft Employment Equity Amendment Bill and Employment Equity Regulations have recently been published for public comment.  CLICK HERE to download

The most noteworthy amendment involves the introduction of sector-specific numerical targets to be set for employment equity. This means employers will no longer be able to set targets according to the national economically active population. The amendments also seek to strengthen the compliance mechanisms.

Employers are urged to highlight these potential changes with their Employment Equity Committees as this will impact your company’s employment equity plan.
