Employment Equity Deadline looming: 01 October 2019

With about 6 weeks to go, the first deadline for the submission of your Employment Equity Reports is very close, especially considering the work than goes into that submission if it hasn’t been regularly monitored throughout the year.

All designated employers must submit their EEA2 and EEA4 reports to the Department of Labour by no later than 01 October 2019.

Designated employers are those who employ more than 50 permanent and/or temporary employees, and/or their turnover threshold is higher than those below:

- Agriculture………………………………………..R6 million.
- Mining and Quarrying……………………………R22.5 million.
- Manufacturing…………………………………….R30 million.
- Electricity, Gas and Water……………………….R30 million
- Construction……………………………………….R15 million.
- Retail, Motor and Repair Services……………..R45 million
- Wholesale and Commercial Trade……………..R75 million
- Catering, Accommodation and other trade…..R15 million
- Transport, storage and communication……….R30 million
- Finance and Business Services…………………R30 million
- Community, special and business services…..R5 million

This will start to avoid the fines which can range from R1 500 000 or 2% of turnover, whichever is greater to R2 700 000 of 10% of turnover, which ever is greatest.

Your employment equity report is a reflection of your progress in achieving your goals and targets.  There has been a significant increases in the Department of Labour’s inspections of employment equity at our clients, and there is no reason to believe it will be letting up any time soon.
