Discusses the republished regulations for EE Sector targets

CDH Director Hugo Pienaar from our Employment Law practice appeared in Newzroom Afrika to discuss the Minister of Employment and Labour republishing draft regulations for sector targets that afford interested parties 90 days to comment on the proposals (republished regulation).

Hugo outlines that the republished regulations furnish more detailed guiding notes on how to interpret and apply the sectoral targets. More importantly, the distinction between provincial and national targets has been removed with the republished targets reflecting a single target for each economic sector differentiated based on gender only.

This comes after the initial and much-anticipated regulation was published on Friday, 12 May 2023, that identified the proposed national economic sectors and employment equity numerical targets under the Employment Equity Act (the "EEA").
