Important (This information will be included in the course)

On 14 January 2014, the President assented to the Employment Equity Amendment Act, No 47 of 2013, which was subsequently published in Notice R16 in Government Gazette No. 37238 on 16 January 2014.  While the Act has been assented to and published, it has not yet come into operation as the President is still required to determine a date on which this will occur.

The Employment Equity Amendment Act marks the first amendments to the Employment Equity Act, 55 of 1998 since it became effective in 1998.  The Amendment Act amends various sections of the principal act – (Lauren Salt, Associate, Employment, Cliffe Dekker Hofmeyr)
