Equal Treatment Seminars: Managing Equal Pay for TES, Fixed Term & Part-time Employees

The Con Court judgement reinforced the need for organisations, especially those utilising TES, to re-assess their remuneration practices to ensure that no unfair differentiation exists between their permanent and non-standard staff members.  And, before simply assuming, often under pressure from Unions, that you’ve got to go to the highest common denominator, you should attend this session to learn more about the compliance requirements you need to meet and the options that exist to re-align pay with productivity and market conditions to ensure business sustainability.

In this 3-hour seminar, John Botha, TES specialist workforce solutions and labour relations expert, will share key information, practical tools & pragmatic advice:

  • Overview of the Constitutional Court judgement (including latest interpretations)
  • Legal Framework: LRAs198 equal treatment for TES and FTC employees vs. EEA
  • Contractual Framework: TES assignees & LRA, dispensation before & after 3 months
  • Granular makeup of Remuneration for purposes of being treated “on the whole not less favourably” as per the LRA and Employment Equity Act (EEA)
  • Process Map: Conducting due diligence in respect of equal treatment
  • Addressing Income Differentials: Phase-in vs. Immediate
  • Understanding Justifiable Differences: per EEA and Equal Pay Code of Good Practice
  • Designing and implementing a Remuneration & Equal Treatment policy
  • Case law and case studies
  • Legal remedies including options available for employers who can’t afford it

All delegates will receive the following value-added elements:

  • Detailed workbook, experienced specialist facilitator & light refreshments
  • Equal Treatment template (conduct due diligence)
