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