Full text
34. An employer whose enterprise employs fewer than 50 employees shall determine the adjustments in compensation required to afford the same remuneration, for work of equal value, to employees holding positions in predominantly female job classes as to employees holding positions in predominantly male job classes. The employer must ensure that the process does not discriminate on the basis of gender.
The employer may elect to establish a pay equity plan subject to the same conditions as those applicable to enterprises employing 50 or more employees. In such case, the employer shall send a notice to the Commission and post a copy in a prominent place easily accessible to employees.
