Employment Equity : Part 2

Breaking News



 

This is the second part in our series on completing the forms EEA 2 and EEA 4, for submission to the Department of Labour on the first working day of October 2004. We recommend that these forms should be completed by a senior official in the company and should not be left to a junior clerk.

 

These forms are required to be completed by all designated employers and a designated employer is defined as an employer who employs 50 or more employees, or an employer who employs fewer than 50 employees but has a total annual turnover that is equal to or above the applicable annual turnover in terms of schedule 4 of the Act.

 

Form EEA 2

 

Section A.

This section is self-explanatory.

 

Section B.

 

This section deals with your workforce profile and requires that you declare the total number of employees in the different occupational categories.
