solidariteitBusiness Report writes that trade union Solidarity has won its Constitutional Court appeal against the employment equity plan of the Department of Correctional Services (DCS).  

The court found the department had unfairly discriminated against the coloured employees who were denied employment on the basis of the plan.  The union argued that the employer only considered national race demographics when effecting the policy instead of weighing in provincial ratios.  The court has ordered that the successful applicants’ remuneration and benefits be backdated from the day they would have been appointed, had they not been denied appointment.
