Employment Equity Reporting is a legislative requirement. Non-compliance with Employment Equity reporting can lead to massive fines. The Employment Equity Arena in South Africa is very diverse and unique. It also plays a very important role in transformation by the implementation of Skills Development and BBBEE practices. It is essential to always see EE as one leg of the total solution to achieve transformation.

An EE plan is a legislative requirement and is an essential part of the reporting process.

Reporting on current employment workforce and future equity plan takes place annually to the department of labour.  The deadline for online submission for the current reporting period is 15 January of every year.  ironWILL will populate and submit the report for the current period.

Consultation to the workforce is required as per the Employment Equity Act.  The best way to do this is to set up an employment equity committee.  It must be a representation of the whole workforce in the company.  ironWILL further assists with putting a committee in place if none exist.  The following process will be followed:

  • Nomination
  • Voting
  • Constitution
  • Appointment
  • Committee Positions
  • Roles & Responsibilities

ironWILL will assist in identifying barriers that prevent the implementation of EE in a company.  ironWILL will also assist with the alignment of policies and procedures that have been identified as a barrier.
