Compliance with Employment Equity Act Workshop

The 17th Commission for Employment Equity Report has led to the Department of Labour adopting a harsher stance on non-compliance with the Employment Equity Act for companies who do not meet the obligations of the Act. Recent proposed amendments to the Act envisage even more draconian sanctions for non-compliance.

The South African Engineers and Founders Association, in partnership with Gordon Angus and Associates, is presenting a one-day workshop on how to deal with your obligations under the Employment Equity Act.

Gordon Angus and Associates offers a  workshop to guide employers through the legislative requirements and business implications of the Employment Equity Act.

Course Programme:

  • Chapter I:
    • Purpose of the EEA
    • Application: Who does the EEA apply to?
    • Important definitions of words and phrases
  • Chapter II: The prohibition of unfair discrimination
  • Chapter III: Affirmative action and the duties of Designated Employers
  • Enforcement of the Act
  • A walk-through the EEA Regulations and Forms

Presenter

The course will be facilitated by Gordon Angus, Director, GA&A and Chloe Hoffmann, Associate, GA&A. Gordon has over 16 years’ experience in industrial relations and has successfully guided many companies with their employment equity needs and obligations over the years.

Chloe received her Bachelor of Arts degree and LLB with distinction from Rhodes University and, thereafter, went on to complete a Master’s of Law degree at Wits University, which she received Cum Laude in 2016. During her studies, she received numerous awards, including the Shirley Ritchie Award for best female student entering the final LLB year, the Brian Peckham Memorial Prize as the best student in Environmental Law, the Phatshoane Henney Incorporated medal awarded for obtaining an LLB degree with distinction, and the Rhodes Investec Top 100 for academic excellence.
