The Black Management Forum has reportedly called on government to criminalise non-compliance with the Employment Equity Act and hold executives responsible for the lack of transformation in workplaces. The organisation was reacting to the annual employment equity report, which showed that there was still unwillingness among employers in the private sector to employ and promote people in line with affirmative action policies. Black Management Forum president Andile Nomlala said that the lack of transformation had direct implications on the stagnation of the economy, adding that there was no justification for non-compliance. The BMF recently launched a litigation fund to push for the review of economic policies that they deemed detrimental to transformation.
