BLACK ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT

Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) has become the order of the day in the South African economic arena and in business as a whole. Due to political and legal obligations, it is vital for any company striving for business success, to implement BEE policies in line with the progressive government Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment Act, to achieve the desired results. As this part of the law is very technical and is usually seen as window dressing, many businesses find it adequate to seek legal advice from legal experts to deal with and get sound advice on how to practically implement BEE in their organisations.
