Who must comply with the Employment Equity Act?

All Employers who employ more than 50 employees or Employers who employ less than 50 employees and who have an annual turnover in excess of the amounts specified in the Employment Equity Act are considered a “Designated Employer” and are legally obligated to comply with Chapter III of the Employment Equity Act, whilst all Employers, regardless of their size and turnover, are obligated to comply with Chapter II of the Act. 
All designated employers must, in terms of Section 21 of the Employment Equity Act of 1998, submit their Employment Equity Reports annually.

OK, so my business must comply to the Employment Equity Act, so now what?

You are now required by law to submit statutory employment equity reports;
1) compile and implement an employment equity plan;
2) conduct employment equity and diversity awareness training,
3) compile workforce profiles which are representative of designated employees,these being Africans, Indians, Coloureds, White Women and People with Disabilities) amongst the economically active population.

So what if I don't want to comply to the Employment Equity Act?

Failure to comply with the provisions of the Act will result in the Department of Labour issuing compliance orders, and if non compliance persists, the Department of Labour will approach the Labour Court to enforce such compliance orders.
The Labour Court is further entitled to issue financial penalties for such non-compliance,ranging from R100,000 to R500,000 and up to R900,000 for repeated non compliance.
