The 2020 EE Act Amendment Bill is currently being introduced by the Department of Employment and Labour to speed up the pace of transformation within the private sector.
The Bill stipulates that any employer with more than 50 employees who wants to do business with any arm of the State will require a Certificate of Compliance. To obtain a Certificate of Compliance, employers will need achieve their Sector’s Sector Targets for the top four Occupational Levels.
At the beginning of December 2019, the Department of Employment and Labour (‘the DoE&L’) held a virtual meeting with invited representatives from selected members of the Accommodation and Food Service Activities Sector (‘A&FSAS’) during which they proposed the Generic B-BBEE Management Control Scorecard Targets as the Sector’s Sector Targets i.e. 9 specified percentage Targets for each of the Top Four Occupational Levels that need to be complied with by members in setting EE Goals.
A detailed analysis was conducted by Adv Jan Munnik, an experienced Employment Equity expert, on behalf of the Sector, and a number of flaws in the DoE&L’s proposed Targets identified, and included, in the Sector’s response. Adv Munnik also proposed an alternative metrics, and targets, for the Sector which addressed all the above flaws.
Unfortunately, only about a tenth of the employers in the Sector were invited by the DoE&L to the above meeting and consulted with on the Sector’s above response submitted by FEDHASA’s to the DoE&L on 1 April 2021. An updated response was forwarded to it on 19 April 2021.
Certain developments and new information have necessitated the response to be revised and updated.
Whilst awaiting an invitation from the DoE&L for a follow-up Sector engagement, FEDHASA would like to engage with ALL members in the Sector, and in particular those that were not included in the original engagement, on its updated response.
Please join FEDHASA and Advocate Jan Munnik for a two-hour session unpacking FEDHASA’s Updated Response to DoE&L’s Sector Target proposal incorporating alternative Sector Targets:
