Step #1: Preparing and implementing an employment equity plan

The EEA requires you to prepare and implement an employment equity plan to achieve reasonable progress toward employment equity in your workplace.

When you conduct your audit, check that your employment equity plan states the following:
 
  • The objectives for each year of the plan;
 
  • The affirmative action measures you'll implement;
 
  • The numerical goals to achieve representation of suitably qualified people from designated groups in each occupation and level in the workforce;
 
  • The timetable to achieve the numerical goals and strategies to achieve them;
 
  • The timetable for the achievement of goals and objectives other than numerical goals;
 
  • The duration of the plan;
 
  • Procedures you'll use to monitor and evaluate whether there's reasonable progress made towards implementing employment equity;
 
  • The internal procedures to resolve any dispute about the plan; and
 
  • Employees (including senior managers) responsible for monitoring and implementing the plan.
 
Preparing and implementing an employment equity plan is crucial if you want to comply with the EEA and avoid penalties. So never miss this step when you conduct an employment equity audit in your workplace.
