4 September 2017

The Department of Labour is to wind the national roadshows to advocate for employment equity (EE) compliance in the workplaces in the Gauteng Province with the hosting of four workshops.

The Gauteng Province workshops are planned as follows:

·          Pretoria (05 September) at Velmore Hotel, 96 Main Road, Mooiplaats – Erasmia targeting only government departments at national and provincial level.

·          Ekurhuleni (06 September) at The Lakes Hotel & Conference Centre, 1 Country Lane Lakefield, Benoni for all stakeholders

·          Vaal (08 September) at Lord’s Signature Hotel, 53 Raymond Street – Risiville in Vereeniging for all stakeholders.

·          Ekurhuleni (08 September) at Emperors Palace, 64 Jones Road, Kempton Park targeting only municipalities.

The department 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 workshops are held under the theme: “Real transformation makes business sense”.

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 workshops started on 11 July 2017 in Kimberley. Subsequently, workshops have been held in Rustenburg, Nelspruit, Thohoyandou, Polokwane, Bloemfontein, Richards Bay, Durban, East London, Port Elizabeth, Cape Town and George.  

The Department of Labour has partnered with the Commission for Conciliation Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) 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.

Meanwhile, the EE Online and Manual reporting season opened on 01 September 2017. The manual reporting closes on 01 October 2017, and the online reporting season closes in January 2018.
