In the new amendments to the Employment Equity Act, the DoL says you must:
· Get rid of all unfair discrimination – or face a R30 000 fine;
· Draw up a legally compliant EE plan every year – and use the new method to submit;
· Pay employees who do the same work equally – or risk being taken to court;
· Set up an EE forum that is a correct representation of the nation – be careful, SAPS got this wrong;
· Report on how you're achieving your EE goals – but what if you're not…?
· And loads more
