Department of Labour and CEE meets with Wholesale Sector to discuss employment equity implementation

12 September 2016

The Department of Labour’s and the Commission for Employment Equity (CEE) will on Wednesday (14 September 2016) hold a penultimate engagement with the Wholesale Sector on the transforming of workplaces.
The workshop will be held at the Indaba Hotel in Fourways, Gauteng Province. The second last engagement will be held with business leaders to address concerns by the CEE regarding the slow pace of transforming the South African labour market, where designated groups are still confined to the lower rungs in the workplace.

The aim of the sectoral engagements is to consult business leaders or their representatives (managers, human resource officers, EE officers among others) on employment equity issues. The CEE is interested in establishing challenges that employers face in employment equity implementation and strategies so as to overcome them. 

The Department and CEE have been engaging various sectors of the economy to hear direct from them on challenges, and find out their reasons on their  failure to comply with EE legislation. The workshops started in June, and workshops have been held with the Retail & Motor Finance; Catering & Accommodation; Wholesale; Construction; Transport; Educational Institutions; Mining & Quarrying and Electricity, Gas & Water Supply Sectors. 

The Department of Labour and CEE will host the last in a series of engagements with Local Government Sector on 22 September 2016 at The Aviator Hotel in Kempton Park. After the engagements the CEE will compile a report, which it is hoped will help in future in the amending of EE legislation.
