EMPLOYMENT EQUITY

The employment equity act aims to promote equal opportunities for all – regardless of race, gender or for people living with disabilities. The Department of Labour (DOL) views the plan as a designated employer’s employment equity implementation programme.

The EE report looks at your current workforce profile and allows you to set organisational goals and targets that will consistently work towards equalising the demographics within your organisation and bring them in line with the demographics of the country’s population.

The report also highlights potential barriers that may be entrenched within organisational policies, practices and procedures, and sets the stage for planning remedial steps that will ultimately result in equity in your organisation.

 

All employers who qualify as designated employers need to submit the EE reports.

A designated employer either employs more than 50 employees, or has an annual turnover that exceeds the thresholds tabled below:

  • Sector or sub-sections Total annual turnover
  • Agriculture R6 million
  • Mining and Quarrying R22.5 million
  • Manufacturing R30 million
  • Electricity, Gas and Water R15 million
  • Construction R15 million
  • Retail and Motor Trade and Repair Services R45 million
  • Wholesale Trade, Commercial Agents and Allied Services R75 million
  • Catering, Accommodation and other Trade R15 million
  • Transport, Storage and Communications R30 million
  • Finance and Business Services R30 million
  • Community, Social and Personal Services R15 million

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 timeously:

  • you will not qualify as an Empowering Supplier
  • you will not be able to score Employment Equity points
  • you may be fined heavily by the Department of Labour – up to 2% of turnover!
  • the Department of Labour may visit you and do a full audit on your company

The EE report should be submitted electronically on the website of the Department of Labour before 15 January. The submissions website is only open until 15 January, after which it will close down and you will be unable to submit this report.

The amendments now require that all designated employers submit a report every year.

The submission includes 2 documents that must reflect the progress made against the employer’s EE Plan:
