Employment Equity Submissions
Can you believe that it is Employment Equity Submission time again?!!
The submission window opens on 01 September 2022
Employment Equity Submissions is an annual requirement of all designated employers as per the Employment Equity (EE) Act.
The EE Act came into being in 1998 and its purpose is to promote equal opportunity and fair treatment in employment through the elimination of unfair discrimination, implementing affirmative action measures to redress the disadvantages in employment experienced by designated groups and to ensure their equitable representation in all occupational levels in the workforce.
The Employment Equity Amendment Bill is expected to be released in September 2022, as this is when the current workforce equity plans, set by employers themselves, will elapse and it is envisaged that the labour minister would then set new five-year targets in terms of the new law as well as introduce additional changes.
All designated employers must ensure that online submissions are done before the deadline, and the scope of the submissions must comply with any potential changes resulting from the amendments.
Unsure if you are a designated employer or what is expected from your company in terms of the submissions or the amendments? Contact us on 011 483 1190 or email us firstname.lastname@example.org to help you navigate these changes!
