The JDA’s Employment Equity Policy and Plan aims to advance and protect previously disadvantaged individuals by providing opportunities for career advancement, growth, training and development. The Executive Committee and Human Resources and Remuneration Committee provide regular input into the organisation’s employment equity, practices strategies direction and initiatives. The Employment Equity Plan was developed to promote an environment and culture that supports open communication, where everyone is encouraged to express their views without fear of being victimised, and to ensure fair and consistent application and implementation of all employment practices and procedures. Structures and resources have been put in place to coordinate and monitor employment equity implementation across the organisation. The JDA undertakes an annual review of its employment equity processes and general employment practices to inform the implementation of the Employment Equity Plan. The JDA plans its annual employment equity targets in terms of its Employment Equity Policy and reports to the Department of Labour in accordance with the provisions of the Employment Equity Act and within legislated timeframes.
