22 August 2017

The Department of Labour is to host two workshops to advocate employment equity (EE) compliance in workplaces in the Western Cape.

The Department of Labour uses the workshops to create awareness on compliance with the Employment Equity Act, publicise and help prepare the employers with the requirements needed to be used when submitting their online 2017 EE reports to the Department.

The two workshops held under the theme: “Real transformation makes business sense” – will be held on 24 August 2017 in Cape Town at the Cape Town International Convention Centre, and again on 30 August 2017 in George in the Southern Cape.

The agenda for the workshops will focus on the following:
• To publicise the Amended Code of Good Practice on the Preparation and Implementation of the EE plans,
• To encourage employers to submit EE reports online,
• To publicise the 17th CEE Annual Report and the 2016 EE Public Register, and
• To represent current CCMA cases on Employment Equity Act.

The national, annual workshops started on 11 July in Kimberley. Workshops have been held in Rustenburg, Nelspruit, Thohoyandou, Polokwane, Bloemfontein, Richards Bay, Durban and Port Elizabeth so far.

More workshop are to be held in Gauteng, Pretoria (05 September) targeting mainly government departments at national and provincial level, Ekurhuleni (06 September), Vaal (07 September) and Ekurhuleni (08 September) targeting mainly municipalities.

The Commission for Conciliation Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) has partnered with the Department of Labour to share information on the status of employment equity case study.

The workshops are targeting: human resources executives and practitioners; EE Forum members; assigned senior EE managers/transformation managers; academics and trade unions among others.

The EE workshops are held from 08:30-14:00.

The EE Online and Manual reporting season opens on 01 September 2017.
