The Society for Industrial and Organisational Psychology of South Africa (SIOPSA) and The Institute of People Management (IPM) have signed a partnership agreement aimed at the development and enhancement of a humane and progressive workplace and worker experience by all workers in South Africa.
Heritage month is our annual reminder of the diverse heritage of the South Africa population, and accordingly, of South African workplaces. In the workplace content, the Employment Equity Act protects heritage by prohibiting unfair discrimination on a number of grounds, including race, ethnic or social origin, colour, and language. Unfair discrimination is prohibited, but fair discrimination, is not. Included in fair discrimination is the taking of affirmative action measures. We asked an labour law expert, what should possibly change.
