Public Events

Sector Target Preparation: August to October 2021

Sector Targets and Compliance Certificates to retain Government business is going to be the new reality as soon as the 2020 EE Amendment Bill and regulations are enacted.

As no provision is made for any grace period, designated employers will need to start NOW to approach and implement Employment Equity very differently if they want to avoid losing Government business once Sector Targets become law.

Join our leading EE expert, Adv Jan Munnik, in a series of webinars, starting 11 August 2021, aimed at preparing your organisation for the introduction of Sector Targets.

The focus of the webinars will be on how employers can approach and implement Employment Equity differently to ensure that they obtain Compliance Certificate and so retain Government Business. Each of the nine workshops covers a different aspect of EE.
