Johannesburg - Nearly 80% of employers are in compliance with the Employment Equity Act, Labour Minister Mildred Oliphant said on Thursday.

Of 9 468 companies inspected for employment equity compliance in the past financial year 7 449 were found to be in the clear, she said at a workshop to review the department's performance in 2010/11.

"This represents a whopping 79% compliance level," Oliphant said.

She said the department had trained 1 021 shop stewards on the Employment Equity Act, the Occupational Health and Safety Act, and the Basic Conditions of Employment Act.
