Employment equity is a key aspect of the operation of any business and a legislative requirement for designated employees. Employment equity takes dedication and planning and involves multiple stakeholders in any business. Non-compliance with employment equity legislation can lead to audits and consequences for the business, such as fines.

Employment equity is an important part of ensuring that businesses are fair and inclusive workplaces. When done correctly, employment equity can help businesses to attract and retain the best talent, improve morale and productivity, and foster a culture of diversity and inclusion. Done incorrectly, employment equity can be a compliance burden with little benefit to the business. Businesses must take care to ensure that their employment equity plans are well-designed and implemented in order to realize the full benefit of this important initiative.
