What does “equitable” really mean?

Subsequent to the opening of the annual employment equity reporting period on its online portal, the Minister of Labour recently published (for public comment) a draft Code of Good Practice on the preparation and implementation of an Employment Equity Plan.  A copy of this Code can be accessed here.

In addition to the relatively new EEA12 and EEA13 forms (Analysis and Plan templates), this Code provides further guidelines for employers for consideration and implementation appropriate to their circumstances and should be helpful to employment equity steering committees.

The prescribed employment equity analysis that designated employers are required to conduct serves to identify areas where attention is needed and the required equity plans should include measures to address areas of concern within acceptable timeframes.
