Employers in Ontario must comply with the provincial Pay Equity Act. This includes maintaining pay equity as new jobs are created and/or there are “changed circumstances”. In almost every case, pay equity is an important consideration during collective bargaining and in the event of a merger, acquisition or sale. The failure to maintain pay equity can be costly, both financially and in the public eye. Our team has experience assisting clients achieve and maintain pay equity compliance, as well as respond to and participate in investigations commenced by the Pay Equity Commission and in adjudications before the Pay Equity Hearings Tribunal.
