Achieving and maintain pay equity is the law in Ontario. In 1987, the Ontario government passed the Pay Equity Act. The Act describes the minimum requirements for ensuring that an employer's compensation practices provide pay equity for all employees in female job classes. The purpose of the law is to redress systemic gender discrimination in compensation for work performed by employees in female job classes. The Act requires private sector employers with ten or more employees and all public sector employers to value and compare jobs usually done by women to those usually done by men in an objective and consistent way using factors of skill, effort, responsibility and working conditions. A female job class must receive compensation that is at least equal to the compensation that is paid to a male job class of equal or comparable value.
