The department of labour refused to apologise yesterday to listed companies it had named and shamed this week for not submitting employment equity reports.
Mokgadi Pela, the spokesperson for labour minister Membathisi Mdladlana, said the department stood by its report and would not apologise to the companies.

top.DisplayAds(‘SquarLAV’,17,563); Jimmy Manyi, the chairman of the Employment Equity Commission, warned that companies that flouted the Employment Equity Act might be charged with fraud.

He was reacting to the denial by several companies that they failed to submit equity reports to the department of labour.

Companies denied the claims and called on the department to get its facts right before tarnishing their reputations.

In essence the DTI has messed up and should issue an apology to the companies it accussed. Such blatant incompetence is dangerous for a government organisation trying to be “cool”.
