EMPLOYMENT EQUITY (EE) ANALYSIS, COMPLIANCE AND PLAN
An Employment Equity Plan is based on the information collected which analyses barriers in the work place towards Affirmative Action (AA). These barriers affect the successful implementation of Employment Equity in the workplace.
Policies, procedure and practice describe the activity of a company and the interaction between employees and management which result in the final output.
Every designated employer must design and implement an Employment Equity Plan.
Affirmative Action (AA) measures are used to achieve equitable representation of employees from designated groups in the workplace.
The purpose of the EE Plan is to enable the employer “to achieve reasonable progress towards Employment Equity” & eliminate unfair discrimination in the workplace.
We will assist your company by consultation with employees and by providing policies and processes to comply with EE regulation.
SUBMISSION OF EMPLOYMENT EQUITY (EE) REPORTS
The Department of Employment and Labour requires that designated employers annually submit the prescribed EEA2 and EEA4 to the department using the online portal.
The due date for designate employers to submit is on the first working day of October.
It is mandatory for a designated employer to submit EE reports to comply with labour legislation and to earn points under Management Control on the BEE scorecard,should the company require BEE verification.
The EEA2 reflects the workforce and the status of the company’s EE plan.
The EEA4 is the income differential statement and details remuneration from the highest to the lowest earners in the company.
Where disproportionate income differentials or discrimination is reflected on the EEA4, a designated employer is obliged to take measures to progressively reduce such differences.
