    Section 51 Manual for Private?

    Hi,

    I got the following email today:

    IS YOUR BUSINESS REGISTERED WITH THE HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION?

    Do you own a business? A part-time business? Or trade from home
    to make some extra income?

    By law you are required to submit a Section 51 Manual for Private
    Bodies to the South African Human Rights Commission. Failure to
    comply with this piece of legislation could result in a fine of
    up to R15000 and/or two years in jail.

    REGISTER NOW AND AVOID THE RED TAPE.

    Registration is really easy. Total Compliance can help you complete
    your Section 51 Manual, lodge it with the Human Rights Commission
    and will send a copy to you. There's no need to worry about any
    hassle.

    Is it really necessary to have this? It does sound like a quick money making 'scam' to me, so I first want to check with someone who knows

    You don't need a Section 51 manual if your turnover is below:
    From a word document from the HRC website.
    So it is a chancer.

    I got one of these mails from our accountant again today,and did a check and see some other companies in the same field have it, some don't.

    Can someone please shed some light on this matter for me?

    What exactly is this, and why do we need it? Her email actually convinces me that we could be fined in January if we don't comply.
