Employment Equity Legislation Changes – how should we be preparing?

Thursday, May 5th, 11 am SAST for two hours.

Draft changes to the EE Legislation have been circulating since 2018, and the question on most companies' minds is:  what should we be doing in the interim?
Should we carry on as per our existing goals and targets, or should we be doing something more to prepare in time for the proposed date by the Department of Employment and Labour (DEL) for the changes to come through, namely by the 1st October 2022 deadline.

If the changes are legislated by  the 1st October 2022, then our existing EE Plans become obsolete and we must design new EE Plans in line with the new legislation.
All of this in the climate of increased intolerance towards 'foreign nationals' and movements like Operation Dudula. What is the stance of the DEL on foreign nationals?

Join us for a webinar on the 5th May 2022, where we discuss the above topics and explore what to do, so that you are prepared, should the EE Legislation be changed by the end of the year.

The questions we will explore are:

  • What is the current position of the DEL on Foreign Nationals?
  • Will the Huawei court case against the DEL have any impact on your company?
  • How does the Draft National Migration Policy published during February 2022 by the DEL impact on us and is there a link between this paper and your industry?
  • Have the sector targets for your industry been finalised? Where do we find them?
  • How do we prepare for the new categories of 'sector' and 'industry' as published in the proposed Regulations?
  • What can we expect come 1 October 2022 and the deadline for our EE Report?

We will answer to the extent we can all of your questions around the proposed changes and help you with a suggested roadmap to navigate the way and be prepared for when the changes eventually come through.
