Avoid costly fines and use these 6 ideas to implement the EE changes
With all the amendments having been made to the Employment Equity Act in 2014, it's easy for you to slip between the cracks and pay big fines of 10% of your annual financial turnover for non compliance.
So avoid these penalties altogether and follow these 6 practical ideas in implementing the EE changes into your EE undertakings...
Idea#1: Carry out a full in-house EE audit
Don't let the new Employment Equity amendments be the reason the DoL comes after you
There are still many employers who don't know exactly what the new 26 amendments are or even how to apply them.
If you employ more than 50 people or if your turnover is over the Employment Equity Act
threshold for your industry, you need to comply with each and every one of them.
to find out what you need to do to comply and avoid penalties from the DoL
If you have the time, and the available resources, then this is the best way to implement the changes efficiently and effectively.
A full EE audit will identify exactly where you need to make changes.
Idea#2: Get your EE committee involved
If you don't have the time, nor the resources, to carry out a full in-house EE audit, then you can get your EE committee involved.
