The Pay Equity Act requires every employer whose enterprise employs an average of 10 or more people to submit a report demonstrating that there is no pay inequity within the enterprise. Both unionized and non-unionized enterprises are subject to the Act, as well as those that employ only women or only men.
When calculating the number of employees, the Act applies to full time, part time, occasional, regular and temporary workers. However, certain categories of workers are not considered to be employees for the purpose of the Act, including senior management officers, shareholders, trainees, independent operators and students employed during their vacation period.
