Welcome to our complete guide on Employment equity and its new 2023 amendments. Right here, we will offer you with clear and concise information about this important new EE legislation, ensuring you understand its motive, key principles, EE changes, Compliance and the obligations it imposes on employers. We will also talk the newest amendments and their impact, retaining you updated with the modern day compliance requirements.

At its core, Employment Equity aims to promote fair and equitable workplaces by addressing systemic discrimination and ensuring equal opportunities for all employees. This Act encourages employers to create inclusive environments where diversity is valued and individuals from designated groups have equal access to employment and advancement opportunities.

With the current amendments, Employment Equity has undergone essential modifications. We are going to delve into those updates, highlighting the important areas affected and the implications for employers. By understanding the amended provisions, you will be better equipped to navigate compliance necessities and ensure your employer meets its obligations. At McDowell Development Institute South Africa ( MDSA ) We believe Employment Equity should be about Transformation, Diversity, Inclusive and Equity.

In terms of the new amendment,

  1. Changes include the introduction of an Employer Equity Certificate of Compliance which companies wishing to participate in state contracts are now required to provide. Companies without an Employment Equity Certificate of Compliance will not be able to receive any points under the Management Control pillar of the B-BBEE scorecard and could be subject to fines and penalties for non-compliance with the Employment Equity Act. Management Control has traditionally been the pillar that all sectors struggle the most with.
  2. Sector-specific targets set by the Minister of Employment and Labour ostensibly after consultations with industry over the past 18 months, appear to have been more closely aligned to the BEE scorecard.
