The aim was to determine employees' perceptions of fairness regarding employment equity practices and to determine whether there are differences in perceptions between demographic groups. The study was conducted in an organisation in the Health Services industry by means of a diversity questionnaire. Employees' responses were measured along 10 dimensions of employment equity. The analysis was done for gender, race, age and job levels. The results indicated statistically significant differences in fairness perceptions between race groups and job levels. The study concludes that employment equity strategies should be adapted to suit an organisation's specific needs.
