  An employment equity report (EEA2), except for the Income Differential Statement (EEA4), submitted to the Department of Labour is a public document and must be assessible for all employees to view.

Seniority means that you’ve been at the job longer than most of your peers. It’s the ranking given to employees based on length of service and often is the marker by which promotions are measured.

REALITY: Employment Equity and seniority share a common goal: to make sure that employment opportunities are fair, without favoritism or discrimination. Seniority rights acquired as a result of provisions in a collective agreement, or acquired as a result of established practices of an employer, are protected under the Employment Equity Act.
