Manyi’s report brings SA Equity trends under spotlight

15 September 2008

 

The government’s employment equity policies will once again come under a sharp scrutiny as Employment Equity Commission (EEC) chairperson Jimmy Manyi will be officially releasing the 2007/8 Employment Equity Report tomorrow (Tuesday).

Labour Minister Membathisi Mdladlana will officially receive the annual report from Manyi, who will go into detail on its various aspects as well as the latest equity trends in the South African labour market.

Since its enactment under the auspices of the 1998 Employment Equity Act, the EEC has always pursued the promotion of constitutional equality and erosion of labour market disparities in employment, occupation and income which are legacies of past discriminatory practices.

Contravention of the legislation’s provisions has in recent years seen watershed Labour Court sanctions against some employers, while the process itself remains a hotly contested terrain. The media is invited. Details of time and venue for the launch are as follows:

Venue:                        Laboria House

                                    Room G01 Ground Floor

                                    215 Schoeman Street (corner Paul Kruger Street)

                                    Pretoria (central)

Date:                           16 September

Time:                          13:00
