What is Pay Equity?

Are you paying your employees properly?

Introduced in 1987, the Ontario Pay Equity Act aims to rectify wage disparities among employees in predominantly female-held positions.
The Act covers all employers in Ontario except for private sector employers with fewer than ten employees.

The gender wage gap, demonstrating the difference in earnings between men and women, persists despite attempts to reduce it.
On average, women continue to earn less than men. This is influenced by factors such as variations in education levels, work experience, hours worked, unionization, family obligations, and systemic discrimination.

The Pay Equity Act presents an opportunity for organizations to enhance their value through a comprehensive examination of their overall compensation package.
Failure to comply can result in consequences such as fines, interest, and potential legal actions.
Adhering to this statute is mandatory for relevant organizations and is an essential element of their human resource strategy.
