Employment Equity

The Employment Equity Amendment Bill of 2020, which makes a number of controversial amendments to the Employment Equity Act 55 of 1998, has been signed into law. The Minister’s power to determine sectoral numerical targets for designated employers is under the spotlight.

The Employment Equity Amendment Act, 2022 was assented to by the President on 6 April 2023. The amendments are not yet in force. They will take effect on a date fixed by the President by proclamation in the Government Gazette.

The view of the Department of Employment and Labour that transformation has not been driven correctly and transformation has taken too long, being left to the devices of the employers.

The Department of Employment and Labour communicated through their annual roadshows across the country informed employers that the amendments are not yet in force and that all employers that are designated employers under the current Employment Equity Act to still need to report for 2022/2023 period and the deadline for online applications are Monday, 15 January 2024.
