Held under the theme: “Real transformation makes business sense” – the public hearings focus on EE reporting advocacy and the amendments to EE legislation more especially section 53 as well as Regulations, designed to fast-track the transformation of workplaces.

The Department of Labour has already published the Employment Equity Amendment Bill and the Draft Employment Equity Regulations in the Government Gazette. This was in response to the slow pace of transformation in the workplaces. The Department is using the public hearings to gather comments to the EE amendments.

The public hearings are open to employers or heads of organisations, academics, assigned senior managers, consultative EE forum members, human resource practitioners, trade unions representatives and employees.

The EE public hearings are held from 08:30 to 14:00. The public hearings end on 26 October 2018 in Johannesburg, Gauteng Province.
