Dear employer

In terms of the Employment Equity Act (EEA), a ‘designated employer’ must comply with all the duties contained in the Act.

An employer is a ‘designated employer’ if he/she employs 50 employees or more; or employs less than 50 employees but has an annual turnover above the relevant industry thresholds in terms of Schedule 4 of the EEA (to view click here).

A designated employer must assign a senior EE manager, communicate and create awareness, setup a consultative EE committee, analyse the workforce and workplace practices, implement an EE plan and has a duty to file an EE report.

Cofesa understands that this is a frustrating & business-restricting duty.
