The signing of the Employment Equity Bill by president Cyril Ramaphosa continues to receive mixed reactions. The Institute of Race Relations has joined Solidarity and the DA in rejecting the bill and taking legal action against it. Gabriel Crouse, Head of Campaigns at the IRR, weighs in.
The public has just over 20 days to comment on the Department of Employment and Labour’s draft sectoral employment equity targets for designated businesses in SA. Under the new proposed laws the employment minister has the power to set sector specific targets for transformation achieved over five years.
