Employment Equity in South Africa

South Africa has a tainted past due to the apartheid era which was characterised by job segregation, economic inequality and social exclusion.

Over the last two decades, the South African government has enacted various legislatures as a means to provide redress and drive transformation.

The Employment Equity Act No.55 of 1998 was passed with the key purpose of driving equity in the workplace by promoting equal opportunity and fair treatment in employment.

Compliance is critical

If an employer fails to comply with the Employment Equity Act, a fine may be imposed. This fine can range from the greater of R1 500 000.00 or 2% of the employer’s turnover to R2 700 000.00 or 10% of the employer’s turnover, depending on the frequency of the offence.

Non-compliance on Employment Equity can also directly impact your BBBEE compliance as no points will be awarded on the Management Control element of the scorecard.

Transcend can assist with:

  • Employment Equity due diligence and committee training.
  • Coordinating consultation processes on Employment Equity.
  • Conduct an internal audit on E.E. barriers and identify appropriate affirmative action measures.
  • Develop an EE Plan with numerical goals and targets for the applicable period.
  • Submission of annual EE reports to the Department of Employment and Labour.
