This is a study undertaken to assess the effectiveness of employment equity implementation at Suncoast Casino. 2004 will mark ten years since South Africa became a democratic Country and as such it is now time to assess changes that have taken place since 1994. This study delves into the minds of staff at Suncoast Casino to evaluate their perceptions on employment equity implementation based on the five processes of the Employment Equity Act of 1998. Whilst the Employment Equity Act attempts to right old wrongs, the question that still emerges is: Is this not just another attempt at window dressing past injustices? A structured questionnaire was effectively utilised to obtain the necessary data required for the outcomes of the study. The questionnaire was designed to specifically target the five provisions of Chapter Three of the Act. The responses were captured on SPSS and were subject to analysis. The results of the study revealed very interesting findings. It was clear that employment equity implementation is taking place at Suncoast Casino. The findings however, did suggest that improvements in job satisfaction and training and development are required at Suncoast Casino in order to ensure effective employment equity implementation. Chapter Five explores possible recommendations for dealing with these areas of concern. The point of conclusion to this research undertaken is dealt with in Chapter Six.
