The Pay Equity Office has prepared this guide to assist compensation specialists, unions, legal professionals, and others who need to know more about pay equity law in Ontario.
This Selected Case Reference Guide is an annotated copy of the Pay Equity Act with a curated selection of relevant tribunal and court caselaw inserted next to the section of the act that it applies to. Each selection is presented as a short synopsis of the case’s precedent and a link to the source decision on CanLii.org. You can look up key cases either by browsing to the section of the act you’re interested in, or by using the Case Index at the end of the Guide.
We alert you to the reality that statutes and regulations can change at any time, so this guide will not necessarily reflect the most recent legislative changes. For the most recent version of the Pay Equity Act and its regulations, please go to https://www.ontario.ca/laws/statute/90p07.
