You must comply with the EE Act for these reasons, says Greg Kowalik


According to Greg Kowalik of Labour Net, the amendments to the EE Act show that the Department of Labour is taking its role very seriously with regards to employment equity.

Not only has dealing with the adverse effects of past discrimination become a social imperative, but compliance with employment equity Legislation has now, more than ever, become a business imperative, says Kowalik.

If you fail to comply with the provisions of the Employment Equity Act No 55 of 1998 and the Employment Equity Amendment Act, 2013, you'll face large financial penalties in the form of fines from an Employment Equity legislative perspective.

Note: Fines for failing to comply with the EE Act range from R1.5 million to R2.7 million!
 

Failure to comply with the EE Act will tarnish your corporate reputation


Kowalik adds that failure to comply with the Act will also have adverse consequences on your Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) scorecard because you'll be failing to transform.

This will tarnish your corporate reputation and could make you lose your competitive advantage when recruiting and retaining high performing staff as well as tendering for business.

If you think your failure to comply with the Act will go unnoticed you're wrong. People talk and they're well aware of companies who aren't keen on transformation.

The bottom line: It's a MUST that you comply with the EE Act and achieve employment equity in your workplace. Not only will you avoid penalties by complying, your company will continue to thrive too.
