15th of January 2020 is the deadline for the submission of your Employment Equity report. If you are a designated employer, with 50 or more employees, or if you are working on maintaining your BBBEE scorecard, then this is something that needs to be taken care of. With year-end around the corner and many businesses shutting down and staff going off on leave there are very few actual working days left to get your report submitted.
There is no time to delay in preparing yourself for the submission of this years report along with all of the other aspects which need to be taken into account. If you haven’t yet had time to properly implement, you have a small window of opportunity to get your company up to speed and compliant.
As Employment Equity is well and truly underway, some companies might find themselves scrambling for all of the information that they need for their reports. Documents like the EEA2 contain a vast amount of information which should be updated through the year, on your payroll system. Pay Solutions payroll offers you an HR Management platform which links to your Payroll system which allows you to immediately download completed reports for the Department of labour based on what has been captured in the system and based on the movements of your workforce distribution, which covers recruitment, promotions, terminations and skills development and is offered at the fraction of the cost of other Employment Equity modules provided by some service providers. In addition, you can save on the cost of paying for expensive software upgrades, consultation fees and time wasted waiting for reports to be fixed by your external consultant.
Employment Equity Submission Deadline is looming – ensure your EEA2 and EEA4 is submitted online by the 15th January 2018. NO EXTENSIONS WILL BE GRANTED. Non-compliance can result in an R1.5 m or 2% company turnover whichever is the greater.

This is the final part of our Employment Equity Transformation series.
In the field of Employment Equity Transformation, employers tend to neglect the relationship between HR Strategies and Operational Practices. Whereas Recruitment Procedures are concerned, approach these business units as if they were segmented. By utilising your existing staff as prime targets for development and promotion/succession planning targets, you effectively cause a gap in your business with every internal placement made.
This gap, in turn, provides an opportunity for the business to obtain an external staff member, the need of which would be mandated by your relevant Employment Equity Targets. Targeted advertisements with a specifically small focus area would, by default, yield a higher success rate.
