This FAQ was inspired by media reports that confuse EE and BBBEE.

Employment Equity (EE) and Broad-based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) are two entirely different concepts, based on two different statutes, and with different intentions. 

The Employment Equity Act (55 of 1998) has the overall objective of removing discrimination in the workplace. In addition, the act promotes the development to senior and executive positions of people who were previously excluded under the apartheid legislation.
