Last week, Minister for Employment and Labour, Thulas Nxesi commented on the slow pace of transformation in the workplace. Nxesi said that in an effort to push transformation government will now introduce ‘harsh measures’ for non-compliance.

Speaking at the launch of the Commission for Employment Equity’s latest transformation report. Nxesi warned that companies that do not comply with the laws of South Africa will ‘face the music and be punished’.

Harsh measures to include the amendments to the Employment Equity Act

Part of the ‘hard measures’ will include fast-tracking the amendments to the Employment Equity Act – which we discussed in this blog.

“Our intention is to resuscitate legislation that could not go through. We hope Parliament will prioritise the bills because their amendments were at an advanced stage.”

He added that this is not a single solution, but is in fact, a range of solutions to deal with the problems in the economy and workplace.
