The Cape Chamber of Commerce on Thursday said if the new draft regulations of the Employment Equity Act is implemented it would mean that a system of unfair discrimination on staff would have to be imposed. 

President of the Cape Chamber of Commerce Janine Myburgh said they have written to the Minister of Labour objecting to the social engineering and race based provisions in the draft regulations.

Myburgh added that the Chamber has written to the Minister of Labour objecting to the social engineering and race-based provisions in the draft regulations.

“In this corresponded we quote the recent judgement which states that not taking regional demographics in to account when promoting staff amounted to unfair discrimination.

Surely after 20 years of democracy we have reached a stage of development where the race factor should be phased out of employment legislation and not re-enforced with new regulations.” Myburgh said.
