Employment equity

Since the dawn of our democracy in South Africa the matter of employment equity has not been a tangible one, the human-resource policy has been characterised by limited commitment.

Few understand the term Employment Equity in the workplace and it remains an apprehensive manner. To appraise this system of establishing equal access to jobs for members of designated groups who experienced past discrimination, such as black people.

People with disabilities and members of minorities and women. The employment equity initiatives of employers and governments while at the same time ensuring those current members' seniority rights are protected.

The aims of the Employment equity are to promote and achieve equity in the workplace, by encouraging equal opportunity amongst all workers. Is this the case in South Africa I don't think so
