Never miss these two steps when you implement employment equity in your company
 

When it comes to implementing employment equity, many companies miss these two steps. As a result, their employment equity efforts fail and they get harsh penalties. Don't fall into the same trap.

Take a look at the two steps you must never leave out when you implement employment equity in your company…

Step #1: Educate and train all your staff

Educate your staff on what the EE Act says and the rights and obligations of both employers and employees.

It's also important to train any EE Representative Forum (such as an EE Committee) so they've got expert knowledge on the full content of the Act as well as their responsibilities and reporting requirements.

Step #2: Form an EE Committee

Once you've completed the training, form an EE Committee. The aim of this committee is to implement employment equity in your company.

Check out the Labour Law for Managers Loose Leaf Service for details on how to set up the committee and their responsibilities.

There you have it. If you want to comply with the EE Act and avoid DoL penalties, never miss these two steps when you implement employment equity in your company.
