Increasingly we see companies being audited with strict fines of a minimum of R1.5 million for non-compliance with employment equity reporting requirements. This is a bitter pill for a process which is easy to implement with the right help.
Employment Equity has also become an important element of B-BBEE that needs to be taken seriously.
Our consultants have many years of experience with legislative requirements. We will provide your business with expertise and assistance, from submission of reports to compiling the Employment Equity plan and conversing with the department on your behalf.
The purpose of workplace skills planning is to outline how organisations will address their training and skills development requirements. WSPs support employers in the recognition and implementation of various skills development programmes such as learnerships and internships to deal with skills gaps within a company.
Skills development has become a strategic priority for enterprises wishing to attain or retain an acceptable B-BBEE level and also meet the requirements of the Skills Development Act.
In accordance with the Skills Development Act, all registered employers with an annual payroll exceeding R500 000 are required to pay skills development levies and subsequently submit a Workplace Skills Plan (WSP) and an Annual Training Report (ATR). These submissions are to be made annually to the relevant Sector Education and Training Authorities (SETA) before the deadline of 30 April each year.

PROTECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
The long waited commencement of the POPI Act (POPIA) was announced by President Cyril Ramaphosa on 22 June 2020 with the enforcement date set for 30 June 2021. A twelve month transition (or grace) period ommenced to give organisations time to implement compliance measures. After this date, organisations failing to comply with POPIA could suffer significant penalties.
In view of the above, there is now a legal obligation for achieving compliance.
Apart from the potential penalties for non-compliance, there are significant business benefits to be obtained from implementing appropriate and reasonable measures for protecting the personal information of your customers, staff, suppliers and other stakeholders. They will also enable you to demonstrate high levels of compliance with the POPI Act /POPIA.
All businesses fall under the ambit of this Act and the “personal information” referred to in terms of the acts covers not only employees, clients and suppliers but also legal persons like Companies and Trusts.
