Employment Equity Act

EE changes: What should you worry about? (Part 1)

Recently, the Employment Equity Amendment Bill was published for comment. The proposed amendments, which have everyone talking, are those dealing with unfair discrimination, affirmative action, and equal pay for equal work.

In the coming weeks, we will discuss the planned affirmative action laws, equal pay for equal work or work of equal value, and the changes regarding the treatment of sexual harassment cases and testing.
