Avoid paying R2.7 million for not complying with the EEA

by , 10 October 2014
The Department of Labour can fine your company for any non-compliance in terms of employment equity. Fines can range from R1.5 million up to R2.7 million or 10% of your turnover depending on the offence.

It doesn't matter how profitable your company is, you don't want to pay that much for something you can avoid.

Today I'll show you nine main offences which companies receive fines for. Take note of these so you don't contravene the EEA and pay millions in unnecessary fines.

Keep reading to see what the offences are.

Nine main EE offences companies receive fines for
 
• Not appointing a Senior Manager to take responsibility for Employment Equity;
• Not having an EE Plan;
• Not having a consultative forum or not consulting appropriately in terms of the requirements of the EE Act;
• Not conducting a workplace analysis;
• Not identifying and implementing Affirmative Action measures;
• Not setting realistic targets and goals in terms of EE;
• No valid reason for not achieving Affirmative Action targets and goals;
• Not submitting an EE report; and
• Not training staff on three key areas. These are HIV/Aids in the workplace, cultural sensitivity and sexual harassment.

P.S. With all the labour law changes this year, we thought it would be a great idea to do a wrap up workshop in Johannesburg. This workshop will include all the recent changes to Employment Equity Act, Employment Equity Regulations, Basic Conditions of Employment Act and the Labour Relations Act. Email me your name to seminars@fsp.co.za and I'll keep you posted with more details.
