The Portfolio Committee on Labour invites interested people and stakeholders to submit written comments on the Employment Equity Amendment Bill [B 31 – 2012] and the Employment Services Bill [B 38 – 2012].
The Employment Equity Amendment Bill seeks, among other things, to amend the Employment Equity Act, 1998 (Act No. 55 of 1998), so as to give effect to and regulate the fundamental rights conferred by section 9 of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1996 (the Constitution); to give effect to obligations incurred by the Republic as a member state of the International Labour Organisation; to enhance the effectiveness of primary labour market institutions such as the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (the CCMA) and the labour inspectorate; to make further provision regarding the evidentiary burden of proof in allegations of unfair discrimination; to further regulate the issuing of compliance orders; to extend the Minister’s power to issue a code of good practice and to delegate certain powers; and to rectify anomalies and clarify uncertainties that have arisen from the interpretation and application of the Employment Equity Act in the past decade.
The Employment Services Bill seeks, among other things, to repeal all the employment services provisions contained in the Skills Development Act, 1998 (Act No. 97 of 1998), as well as those provisions establishing Productivity South Africa. It further seeks to provide for the establishment of schemes to promote the employment of young work seekers and other vulnerable persons; to facilitate the employment of foreign nationals in a manner that gives effect to the right to fair labour practices and does not impact adversely on existing labour standards or the rights and expectations of South African workers; to provide for the registration and regulation of private employment agencies; to provide for the establishment of the Employment Services Board; to provide for the establishment of Productivity South Africa; to provide for the establishment of Protected Employment Enterprises; and to provide for transitional provisions.

Attorney have once again been invited to assist a team of grade 11 learners from a secondary school to participate in the Third National Schools Moot Court Competition (2012/2013).
HOW TO ASSIST
Attorneys can fill in the relevant form [read more to access form] in which they can pick a specific school or offer to assist a school in a specific area. They will then be paired up with their school of choice or a participating school requesting assistance.
Participation forms can also be completed and submitted online - visit www.lssa.org.za
In a letter to the Law Society of South Africa, Prof Christoff Heyns, Co-Director of the Institute for International and Comparative Law in Africa at the University of Pretoria, indicated that attorneys’ willingness to assist school teams with preparation to enter and participate in the competition raises the standards of the competition, and is particularly valuable to ensure that learners who may not otherwise have the necessary support can shine and develop their talents.
Attorneys can identify schools which they want to assist themselves or be allocated a school. One of the challenges stressed by Prof Heyns is the need to assist and encourage new and previously disadvantaged schools to participate.
The aim of the competition is to create greater awareness in schools and communities in South Africa about the Constitution and the values that it embodies through active participation. Talented young people are also encouraged to consider pursuing a career in law. This competition provides a unique opportunity for learners to develop their research, writing and oral advocacy skills as they endeavour to come to grips with some of the constitutional issues that are presently facing our
There are two phases in which the learners will need assistance:
• Phase 1:
Learners at all schools in the country are to prepare essays before 12 April 2013, on the basis of which nine teams will then be selected to participate in the provincial oral rounds in May and June 2013. Then four teams in each province will be selected to participate in the national oral rounds in August 2013.
• Phase 2:
The teams who become finalists to participate in the provincial oral rounds and after that the national oral rounds need assistance. The nine teams per province should be identified by May 2013, and then in the period leading up to the provincial oral rounds which are held in May and June 2013 and the national oral rounds which are held in August 2013, they will be preparing for their performance and some assistance may also be necessary.
For more information on the Third National Schools Moot visit www.lssa.org.za or contact the Moot organiser, Cherryl Botterill at e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or fax 086 645 3569.
The deadline for participation is 9 November 2012.
