The government introduced legislation on 19 September 2018, that would provide a specific process for employees to make a pay equity claim against an employer or group of employers. The previously proposed process required that claimants demonstrate that their claim had “merit,” whereas the new legislation requires only that their claim be “arguable.” Upon receiving a claim, an employer would have 20 working days to give notice to employees performing the same or substantially similar work and would then have 65 days from the date of the claim to determine whether the claim is arguable. An arguable claim would be handled through pay equity bargaining under existing dispute resolution provisions of the Employment Relations Act. Employers should monitor the bill as it makes its way through the legislative process.
