Do you know the eight forms you MUST complete when reporting on EE in your company?

by , 22 September 2015
The Employment Equity (EE) Act aims to promote fair treatment and equal opportunity for all workers.

This is through the complete removal of unfair discrimination in the workplace. It also aims to promote demographic representation in the workplace.

If you're a designated employer, then the EE Act applies to you. In other words, if your company has more than 50 employees or your annual turnover is more than the threshold for you particular sector, then you qualify as a designated employer.

If you're a designated employer, you have to comply the EE Act. And not doing so can lead to a massive fine being imposed on you!

Within your legal obligations to the EE Act, you HAVE TO use the right forms and send through the right information on them to the Department of Labour by the 1st of October every year.

Having said this, it's vitally important that you know exactly what these forms are and what information they require. Doing so will help you use the right forms and send through the right information.

So, here are the eight forms must complete when reporting on employment equity within your company:

1.EEA1 form

This is a declaration by your employees.

Give them this form to fill out and so find out which employees are from which designated groups.

2.EEA2 form

This is your Employment Equity Report.

It must be sent to the Employment Equity Registry.

3.EEA4 form

This is your Income differentials statement.

It must also be sent to the Employment Equity Registry.

The next five forms are used to compile your Employment Equity Report. They are the:

4.EEA8 form

This form is used to consult with your employees and prepare your EE Plan.

5.EEA9 form

This form helps you look at the different occupational levels when completing the EEA4 form.

It also provides a template for looking at equal pay and equal work.

6.EEA10 form

Complete in-house for your Annual Report.

7.EEA12 form

This form gives you a template to record your barriers analysis in line with Section 19.

8.EEA13 form

This form is used as a template for your EE Plan.
 

So, those are the eight forms that you must complete when reporting on employment equity within your company.
