Employment Equity Department<ul><li>​Affirmative Action and Disability Unit </li><li>Gender and Diversity Initiatives Unit​​​</li></ul><p>​Our function is to provide corporate direction, ensure compliance with employment equity legislation, and achieve a diverse and representative workplace. </p><p>Employment Equity is a strategy that has been adopted by national government to redress the imbalances in employment, occupation and income. It is underpinned by the Employment Equity Act of 1988, which aims to achieve equity in the workplace for persons from designated groups and ensure that they are equitably represented in all occupational categories and levels in the workforce. </p><p>In terms of the Employment Equity Act, the City must have an EE plan that sets out the steps it intends to take to achieve employment equity over five years. To do this, the City has to regularly analyse its workforce profile, and employment practices and policies. We also have to consult with unions and employees to get consensus around the EE plan and report on it regularly to the Department of Labour, which monitors its implementation. </p><p>​</p><span><ul class="lrg-icon-content"><li class="lrg-icon lrg-link"><div class="list-links">​ <a href="" title="title">Learn about disability in the workplace <span style="color:#424242;">​</span></a></div></li></ul></span><blockquote cite=""><p> <em>​"We value equity to bridge equity, diversity and inclusivity as a key business imperative." </em> <b>Michael Siyolo </b> <cite>Manager: Employment Equity</cite>​​ </p></blockquote><img alt="" src="" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><span> <div class="contact"><h4>Manager</h4><p>Michael Siyolo</p><address><ul><li>Telephone: <br><a>021 400 9840</a> / <a>021 400 9845</a> ​</li></ul></address></div></span>
