Pay Equity for Employees
The Ontario Pay Equity Act provides that both women and men receive equal pay for performing jobs that may be very different but are of equal value.
At the same time, the Employment Standards Act provides that women and men must receive equal pay for the the same job. In other words, equal pay for “equal work”.
If an employer breaks the law regarding pay equity, the employer could be ordered to pay the employee the amount of all compensation lost.
