The Employment Equity Act requires a company to comply with the act in terms of recruitment policy and the Skills Development legislation requires that employees be trained and developed. Many employers need to comply in order to complete EE reports and to claim back Skills Development Levies. Companies need to comply in order to reach BEE scorecard targets.
The course is designed to enable the delegate to understand the
fundamentals of Employment Equity & Skills Developement.
The author of the course Michael Opperman is also the author
of two books called “A Practical Guide to Disciplinary Hearings” & “Investigating Misconduct and Incapacity.”
Both books are published by Juta Law.

Please note that this course needs a minimum of 6 delegates to schedule a course. You can choose to be added to the waiting list by clicking the button below and we will contact you when we have enough delegates interested. Should we not get enough delegates, we will refund or credit your paid booking.
Should you need this course urgently, the following options are available:
- Pay for 6 delegates (whether you have them or not) and we will schedule the course as soon as possible.
- If you have fewer delegates and cannot pay for 6, we can negotiate a shortened course where some of the time will be spent in blended learning - watching videos and doing tutorials and exercises with some contact time with the trainer. We would want to discuss what your core needs are so that we cover those aspects. You need to have paid for 3 delegates at least.
