The Amended Employment Equity Act and the Equity Regulations have introduced a number of new concepts and also new templates which need to be considered in the implementation of Employment Equity. Now is therefore a good time to review the company’s Employment Equity Plan and Employment Equity Reporting in light of the new requirements.

The regulations have introduced much more specific requirements in the development and implementation of an Employment Equity Plan, e.g. specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time bound annual objectives, numerical goals and targets with exact time frames and strategies and a template with minimum requirements, etc. These need to be considered when developing and reviewing such plans.

The regulations also include some suggestions regarding changes to The Employment Equity Reporting Format. Different companies are applying the principles regarding reporting differently. Processes of reporting can often be more efficient, e.g. using the functionality of Excel better to simplify reporting.
