Department of Employment and Labour proposes sectoral targets for Employment Equity compliance; 30-day comment period now open

The Department of Employment and Labour has released proposed sectoral targets (click here to view) for compliance with the Employment Equity Amendment Act, 1998. Employers and stakeholders have a 30-day public comment period to review and make any necessary representations. Compliance with the targets will be important for employers in the upcoming reporting period and will impact their ability to obtain compliance certificates required for state contracts.

SAIFM encourages all employers to review these targets and take advantage of the opportunity to comment.
