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 implementation of Skills Development and BBBEE practices. It is essential to always see the Employment Equity as one leg of the total solution to achieve transformation.
