The Employment Equity Act 2019

All employers must comply with the Employment Equity Act, but “designated employers” (who meet the minimum requirements) have additional obligations.

The goal of the Employment Equity Act:

The Employment Equity Act aims to eliminate unfair discrimination in the workplace by promoting equal opportunities and fair treatment.
