Abstract

By passing the Employment Equity Act 55 of 1998 Parliament is aiming to redress past discrimination. This piece of legislation has generated intense debate. The opposing political parties were all united in their rejection of the Act as 'discriminatory'. There is now talk of challenging the Act in the Constitutional Court. One of the opposition parties is reported to have obtained a legal opinion which concluded that certain provisions of the Act were unconstitutional.
