Preparing for your next EE Plan: Developing a user-friendly and practical EE Plan that eases implementation

In 2014, the DoL issued new Regulations which included the EEA 13, described therein as a ‘Template for Employment Equity Plan in terms of Section 20 of the Act’.

Whilst the EEA13 template is an extremely useful instrument for fulfilling its purpose, namely to ensure Designated Employers’ EE Plans comply with the requirements of Section 20, it is only a Template. It is, in fact, very user-unfriendly in contextualising the EE Plan and how the Plan was developed, and in serving as a practical implementation tool.

The EEA13 template furthermore omits certain critical legal requirements such as strategies in support of Numerical Goals and Non-Numerical Goals.

This webinar has been designed to assist participants to develop a user-friendly EE Plan, based on the Template, and which addresses all the above inadequacies of the EEA13.

Topics covered

  • Participants’ EE Plan challenges and expectations.
  • Aspects of the EE Act as amended relevant to the development of the EE Plan.
  • Comparison between EEA13 Template and Section 20 of EE Act.
  • Identifying, with reference to your audience, what else to include in a user-friendly EE Plan.

  • Developing:
    • Strategies in support of Numerical Goals

  • Senior Managers responsible for monitoring and implementing the EE Plan
