The Department of Employment and Labour announced the schedule of upcoming Employment Equity roadshows and we urge all employers to attend these workshops which will be held throughout the country commencing 20 August 2019.

For a list of all roadshow dates, click here.

The objective of these roadshows is ‘to create awareness on compliance with the Employment Equity Act, share the most current information and help prepare employers to submit full and accurate EE reports online to the Department’.

In a GBS mailer sent out yesterday, we shared information with you regarding the critical aspects of the new revised EEA4 regulations.  The objective of the EEA4 Form is ‘to collect information for the assessment of the remuneration gap between the highest paid and the lowest paid employees and, at the same time, to assess inequalities in remuneration’.

To assist employers with their alignment with legal and reporting requirements of the new EEA4 Form, we have scheduled a Webinar to take place on the 22nd of August 2019.

This year’s roadshows will focus not only on the above mentioned changes to the EEA4 Form, but also:

  • The ILO Convention on the elimination of violence and harassment in the ‘World of Work’ and;
  • CCMA presentation on cases of violence, harassment and dispute resolutions

In addition, the Department also announced that the 19th Commission for Employment Equity (CEE) Annual Report will be published and a media briefing held on the 26th of August 2019. We will be sure to send all clients a copy of this Report once released.

This CEE Report together with envisaged EEA amendments and Sectoral Targets will be discussed at our upcoming Employment Equity Amendments Workshop. This one-day workshop will be held across the country:

  • Johannesburg: 3 September 2019
  • Cape Town: 10 September 2019
  • Durban: 8 October 2019
  • Port Elizabeth: 22 October 2019
