Course Overview

Today, South Africa’s workforce is made up of individuals from diverse backgrounds and cultures. The ability to understand and manage all types of people is critical to achieving organisational goals and objectives. Employment Equity Act is one of the HRD legislation that seeks to eliminate unfair discrimination (policy and practice) in the workplace, and to achieve equitable representation of employees from designated groups.

Businesses are expected to comply and meet targets and are subjected to penalties which according to the new amendment to the Employment Equity Act will target the turnover and force non-compliant businesses to close their doors and result in more unemployment and economic downturn. Thus, the Employment Equity Act requires that designated employers design and implement an Employment Equity plan in order to achieve reasonable advancement in employment equity.
