What is employment equity
The Act was established in 1998 to address unfair discrimination and ensure equality in the work place.
Its aim is to promote equal opportunities and fair treatment to all and to implement measures to protect those disadvantaged in the past by unfair discrimination.
In terms of the Employment Equity Act 55 of 1988, a business entity that employs more than 50 people or has an annual turnover exceeding the prescribed threshold, must complete an EE report and submit it to the Department of Labour.
Organisations with fewer than 50 employees might also need to comply with the Act, depending on the annual turnover.
The National Defence Force, National Intelligence Agency and South African Secret Service are excluded.
Designated groups are blacks (Africans, Coloureds and Indians), women and people with disabilities.
