The purpose of the study was to test whether the perceptions of employment equity (EE) and black economic empowerment (BEE) are related to organisation-related commitment and whether the perceptions about the mentor’s role significantly mediate this said relationship. The sampling frame for the study constituted 1200 employees of a division of a large transport organisation and a convenience sample including all 1200 employees yielded 637 fully completed records (a 53% response rate). The results of the study indicate that the perceptions of EE and BEE are significantly related to organisation-related commitment and that perceptions of the mentor’s role do not mediate this relationship. More detailed findings on the study are reported.
