26 Changes to the Employment Equity Act you should know

by , 07 February 2014
Well, after years of waiting, it's finally happened. After much debate, the amendments to the Employment Equity Act (EE Act) were just signed by the President.

So what exactly have these new amendments changed?

There are 26 changes to the EE Act and one of the biggest changes is in terms of Employment Equity Plans (EE Plan). All designated employers must follow the same guidelines when it comes to drawing up EE Plans no matter their company size. Read on to get six guidelines for drawing up an EE Plan.

Six guidelines to draw up your EE Plan

1. Prepare an EE Plan for each region, satellite office or installation of your company;
2. Include in your EE Plan specific steps and measures that detail how you'll implement employment equity in your company;
3. Include the steps and measures you'll take to reduce income differentials and other unfair discrimination in work conditions;
4. Detail reasonable steps to train suitably qualified people from designated groups;
5. Report annually against progress in terms of your EE Plans. All designated employers now have to report every year; and
6. Prepare a successive EE Plan prior to the expiry of your current plan.

Until next time.
