Employment Equity is a legislative requirement for all companies deemed to be designated employers.

A designated employer means:

  • A person who employs 50 or more employees
  • A person who employs fewer than 50 employees but has a total turnover that is equal to or above the applicable annual turnover of a small business in terms of Schedule 4 of this Act.

If you have more than 150 employees your organisation is deemed to be a designated employer and is therefore required to comply with the Employment Equity Act.

As designated employers, you are required to comply with the following in terms of the Employment Equity Act:

  1. Submit Employment Equity Reports and Income Differential statement, manually by 1 October, or submit electronically by 15 January 2012
  2. Assign a Senior Manager
  3. Establish a Consultative Forum
  4. Prepare an Employment Equity Plan
