The Pay Equity Act sends a clear message to business owners, trade unions, and female workers: the value of women’s work must now be visible and recognized.
The Pay Equity Act aims to correct, within a business, salary gaps due to gender-based discrimination for people who work in employment classes that are predominantly female.
In fact, all employment classes that are predominantly female must be compared with predominantly male employment classes within the same business. If this comparison shows that the salaries in female classes are inferior to salaries in the male classes of comparable value, the employer must adjust the salary of men and women who do these jobs.
Warning! The employer cannot reduce the compensation of employees who work in the business in order to correct salary gaps.
Did you know? The Pay Equity Act sets out different obligations and responsibilities for employers based on the number of salaried persons in their business during a reference period set out in the Act.
