The Federal Pay Equity Regulations: Employer Roadmap and Q&A with an employment lawyer
OCTOBER 20th, 2021 – 12:00 – 1:30 EST
As of August 31st, 2021, federally regulated employers with 10 or more employees are now subject to the Pay Equity Act and its Regulations. This legislation requires employers to take proactive steps towards eliminating wage gaps between men and women in the workplace – ensuring equal pay for work of equal value. New rules will require employers to meet a series of new obligations over the next three years – most of which will centre around the creation and implementation of a pay equity plan. Is your workplace ready?
For employers and HR professionals looking for more information on how to meet their new regulatory obligations, join Trucking HR Canada and employment lawyer Miguel Mangalindan (Partner at Monkhouse Law) as we review some of the most pressing issues surrounding this high-profile agenda. This informational webinar will provide the opportunity to learn more about key employer requirements, including how to follow the steps of the pay equity process and more. Topics will include:
- What is the Pay Equity Act and what does it aim to achieve?
- Employer obligations and key steps in the pay equity process
- Compliance timelines
- How compliance and enforcement works under the Pay Equity Act
- Best practices and practical recommendations on implementing pay equity
Those who register for this webinar will have an opportunity to submit their questions to our team in advance. In the second half of this webinar, Miguel will provide answers and insights, allowing employers to speak with an expert on the topic. Note that any advance questions must be submitted by October 13th, 2021 – however, the webinar will also include some time for some on-the-spot Q&A. Submit all pay equity questions to Marisha Tardif at: [email protected]
