Haven't submitted your Employment Equity Report? Here's what you NEED to know to meet next week's deadline

by , 10 January 2014
The deadline for submitting Employment Equity (EE) Reports online is looming. In fact, you only have five days left until the 15 January 2014 deadline. But, there's no need to panic. Here's what you need to know to hand your company's Employment Equity Report in on time...

'If you missed the October deadline for submitting your Employment Equity Report, you can still submit it online at www.labour.gov.za,' says FSP Business's Taryn Strugnell.

To help you with this process, we've outlined what you need to submit to the Department of Labour (DoL).

Here's what you need to do to submit your Employment Equity Report to the DoL next week

If you're regarded as a designated employer, you must submit an EEA2 and EEA4 report.

In your EEA2 form, you must:

  • Indicate in which of your employment policies or practices you've identified barriers to EE;
  • Indicate whether you've developed, as opposed to implemented, Affirmative Action measures to overcome the barriers;
  • Give the timeframe you've set to overcome these barriers; and
  • Indicate if you've achieved the annual objectives set

Then fill in Form EEA4 with your company's Income differentials statement. Here you must include details relating to foreign nationals', remuneration and explanations if there are any disparities in their remuneration.

For all payment amounts to be reflected in the income differential statement, you must round them to the nearest rand (R) and include them as total remuneration for each group in terms of race and gender.

Ensure you don't include blank spaces, commas, full stops or decimal points or any other separator when you capture the payment amounts in each of the cells in the income differentials statement. For example, R7 345 567.22 must be captured as 7345567.

Remember, to use the right forms when you submit your reports to the Department of Labour or you risk your forms being rejected.

If you're having trouble reporting, Strugnell recommends you use this tool.

Don't forget that you have five days left to submit your EE report online. Don't miss it!
