Department of Labour’s EE Directorate penultimate employment equity advocacy sails to the Capes

31 August 2015

The Department of Labour’s two penultimate annual Employment Equity (EE) national roadshows to promote compliance with EE legislation will be held this week in the Eastern Cape and the Western Cape.

On Wednesday (September 2) a stakeholder briefing session will be held in Port Elizabeth at the Pine Lodge (Marine Drive),  and on Thursday will be held at the Cape Town’s International Convention Centre (Convention Square, 1 Lower Long Street).

The 2015 EE roadshows are held under the theme: “Transformation - makes business sense”. The objectives of the roadshows are:

To publicize the Code of Good Practice on Equal Pay/Remuneration for Work of Equal Value;

To publicize the regulated employment equity templates (EE Analysis-EEA12 & EE Plan-EEA13); and

To encourage designated employers to submit EE Reports On-Line.

The EE roadshows started in Rustenburg on 13 August 2015. To date EE briefing sessions have also been held in Kimberley; Polokwane; Bloemfontein and Durban.

The last EE roadshows will be held next week in Boksburg on 7 September 2015 at Emperors Palace 64 Jones Road; and in Witbank (Emalahleni) on 8 September 2015 at Protea Hotel Witbank (​167 Jellicoe Street).

Employers (companies, government departments etc.) are by law obliged to submit annually to the Department of Labour of their employment equity reports in regard to demographic profile, representation in the organisations and EE plans to address discrimination and inequity in the workplace.

The EE national roadshows presentations are held between 10:00-13:00.

The roadshows are targeted at employers or heads of organisations, academics, consultative forum members, human resource executives and practitioners; assigned Senior EE Managers/Transformation Managers, trade unions and employees among others.

The EE Act was first promulgated in 1998. It was also recently amended. The amended EE ACT of 2013 was assented in January 2014.

N.B: The EE reporting season opens tomorrow (1 September 2015) for both manual and online reporting. Manual reporting submissions close on 1 October 2015. Online reporting will close on 15 January 2016.
