Pay Equity Consulting
Pay Equity Compliance Consulting
Pay equity is equal pay for work of equal or comparable value. The Pay Equity Act was made law to narrow the portion of the wage gap that exists between women’s and men’s wages that was due to the undervaluing of work traditionally done by women.
The law requires the value of jobs usually done by women be compared to the value of jobs usually done by men. Female jobs, which are found to be of equal or comparable value to male jobs, must be paid at least the same.
The original Pay Equity Act was passed in 1987 and became effective on January 1, 1988. The legislation impacts most private and public sector employers with 10 or more employees.
Our consultants have in depth experience in evaluating the compliance status of organizations in both the private and public sectors. We’ve assisted employers in updating and developing pay equity plans for both non-unionized and unionized employee groups. Our consultants have worked closely with the Ontario Pay Equity Commission’s Review Services Branch and the Review Officers assigned to monitor compliance. The following is a list of some of the pay equity related consulting services we offer:
