The Department of Labour’s Employment Equity (EE) Directorate national roadshows to strengthen Employment Equity implementation and compliance mechanisms will next week trek to Polokwane and Bloemfontein.

The Department of Labour started the roadshows on 15 August 2015 in Mbombela (Nelspruit), Mpumalanga Province, with the aim to create awareness on compliance with the Employment Equity Act. On Monday (22 August) an EE workshop will be held at Fusion Boutique, 4 Schoeman Street, Polokwane in Limpopo. Another EE workshop will be held at Sun Windmill, corner N1 Highway & Jan Pierrewiet Avenue, Bloemfontein in Free State.

The EE roadshows are held under the theme: “Transformation - makes business sense”. The objectives of the stakeholder workshops is:

·          To publicise the department’s Code of Good Practice on Employment of Persons with Disabilities;

·          To gather public comment on the Draft Amended Code of Good Practice on the Preparation of EE Plans

·          To publicise the 2016 EE Online Reporting

·          To publicise the 16th Annual Report and the 2015 EE Public Register

·          To present current Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) cases on Equal Pay for Work of Equal Value

The EE workshops are open to human resource executives and practitioners; assigned senior EE managers/transformation managers; EE Forum members; academics’; trade unions and employees.

Employers (companies, government departments etc.) are as per the EE Act obliged to submit annually to the Department of Labour their employment equity reports in regard to demographic profiles, gender representation and EE plans on how to address discrimination and inequity in the workplace.

Since the enactment of the Employment Equity Amendment Act on 1 August 2014, all designated employers as well as those who reports voluntarily are required to report annually in terms of Section 21.

The other upcoming EE roadshows sessions will be held as follows:

·          29 August 2016 – Southern Sun, 45 New England Road, Pietermaritzburg in KwaZulu-Natal
