The Department of Labour has become more visible to ensure that organisations comply to the Employment Equity (EE) Act. The amendment to the Employment Equity Act, which was released in 2014, has far stricter penalties for Employers who don’t comply.
According to the EE Act, all companies that employ more than 50 employees and companies that employ less than 50 employees with an annual turnover exceeding the prescribed threshold must draft and submit Employment Equity Reports to the Department of Labour by 1 October annually. The prescribed threshold for all industries are tabled below.
|Sub Sector||Total Annual Turnover|
|Mining and quarrying||R22.50m|
|Electricity, gas and water||R30.00m|
|Retail and motor trade and repair services||R45.00m|
|Wholesale trade, commercial agents and allied services||R75.00m|
|Catering, accommodation and other trade||R15.00m|
|Transport, storage and communications||R30.00m|
|Finance and business services||R30.00m|
|Community, social and personal services||R15.00m|
