Code of Good Practice

Preparation, Implementation and Monitoring of the Employment Equity Plan (EE Plan)

4. Purpose and Rationale of the EE Plan


4.1 The EE Plan is a designated employer’s implementation programme to achieve equitable representation and fair treatment of the designated groups (i.e. Black people, women and persons with disabilities) in the workplace across all occupational levels.


4.2 The EE Plan addresses the barriers to fair employment practices, i.e. access and treatment in the policies and procedures identified in the consultation and the employment equity analysis process through remedial measures in terms of policies, procedures and practices and the working environment to ensure the equitable representation of the designated groups in the workplace within set timeframes.
