THE Department of Labour’s Employment Equity (EE) reporting season using electronic submissions closes on Friday 15 January.
In terms of the amended EE Act of 2013 employers are by law required to submit their employment equity report plans.
The reports relate to demographic profile, representation in the organisations structure and EE plans to eliminate discrimination and inequity in the workplace.
There were 24 291 employment equity reports received in 2014.
The EE reporting season opened on 1 September, 2015 for manual and online reporting.
Manual reporting submissions closed on 1 October, 2015.
The 2015 reporting season was preceded by a series of EE national road shows held by the Department of Labour’s EE directorate in which the department sought to encourage and inform designated employers on successful EE reporting, with special focus on publicising the Amended Employment Equity Act and EE Regulations.
The EE road shows held under the theme “Transformation - makes business sense” - were designed to publicise the Code of Good Practice on Equal Pay and/or Remuneration for Work of Equal Value, publicise the regulated employment equity templates (EE Analysis-EEA12 & EE Plan-EEA13) and encourage designated employers to submit EE reports online.
