14 Ways to Comply With Employment Equity

What if I promised you that the Labour Law for Managers Loose Leaf Service can help you implement employment equity in your company, save you millions in fines and it won't cost you a penny to find out that I'm right?

If you're a designated employer and fail to implement affirmative action and employment equity, you could be fined up to 10% of your annual turnover per incident.

But, it’s easier than you think to comply with Employment Equity laws. The Labour Law for Managers Loose Leaf  will give you specific details, advice, checklists and templates to make your job effortless

Use this14-point checklist to get started…

  1. Prepare your employees on what to expect in terms of EE consulting (Page E04/033 in the handbook provides you with how to give feedback to your employees)
  2. Set up an employee forum for consultation purposes
  3. Train your EE forum and provide information for valuable consultation to take place
  4. Assign an appropriate senior manager to drive the affirmative action process and design EE KPAs for him
  5. Define roles and responsibilities
  6. Conduct your EE audits (Page E04/007 in the handbook explains exactly how to conduct these audits)
  7. Set numerical targets for the affirmative action transformation of your organisation (Find out what you must do in terms of affirmative action on Page E04/005 of your Handbook)
  8. Draw up an EE Plan, based on the results of the audit, designed to achieve the targets you have set (Page E04/010 gives you a six-step EE plan)
  9. Implement your EE Plan by hiring and training members of designated groups and advancing them into key positions once they're ready for it. Don’t place anyone in a position for which they're not ready

There are four more steps to implement your employment equity strategy properly. The Labour Law for Managers Loose Leaf has explained and detailed every step of the process.
