Employment Equity

 

It is that time of the year again when employers are required to submit their Employment Equity reports to the Department of Labour not later than the first working day of October this year. Employers who employ 150 or more employees are required to report annually and employers who employ less than 150 employees are required to report a bi-annually. This year however, it falls that all employers, whether they employ less than or more than 150 employees are required to report not later than the first working day of October this year.

 

Employers who have 150 or more employees are required to complete the following:

  • form EEA2 - all sections except section G (progress report) if this is your first report,  or including section G. if this is your second or subsequent report.

  • Form EEA4 - all sections. 

 

Employers who have 150 or less employees are required to complete the following: 

  • Form EEA2 - sections A , B , F and H. if this is your first report then section G. is not required to be completed, but if it is your second or subsequent reporting cycle then section G. must also be completed 

  •  Form EEA4 - sections A and  C. 

 

So as can be seen, nobody escapes the net  this year. 

 

Form EEA 2 

 

This form consists of 12 pages and covers headings such as: 

  • Employer details

  • workforce profile

  • occupational categories

  • occupational levels; which includes numbers of employees in different positions, employees with disabilities and so on

  • workforce movements: including recruitment, promotions, terminations and termination categories,

  • disciplinary action

  • skills development in terms of training provided

  • a qualitative assessment of your employment equity plans, detailing the medical goals resources and so on

  • form EEA 2 culminates in a progress report on your progress in attaining the goals set in your employment equity plan.

 

Form EEA 4

Form EEA4 thankfully consists of only two pages and is the income differential statement. The headings under which detail is required are employer details, income differentials by occupational categories and income differentials by occupational level

Over the next few weeks, we will examine in some detail the completion of these forms.

 

Employers can download these forms from the Department of Labour web site on www.labour.gov.za
