Pay Equity

Pay equity is equal pay for work of equal value. The Pay Equity Act requires all employers in Ontario with 10 or more employees to establish and maintain pay equity. The Pay Equity Office provides free education seminars and publications and provides dispute-resolution services to employers, employees and bargaining agents. Where necessary, the Pay Equity Hearings Tribunal will hear cases and make a final and binding determination on all questions of fact or law related to the Act.

Occupational Health and Safety Program

Occupational Health and Safety Inspectors inspect workplaces and investigate complaints about unsafe work practices. These complaints can be made anonymously. The inspectors will issue orders where they find violations of the Occupational Health and Safety Act and regulations. The Act sets out the rights and responsibilities of everyone in the workplace -- the employer, the supervisor and the worker. When a health-and-safety concern cannot be resolved internally, contact the nearest Ministry of Labour office listed in the blue pages of the phone book. For more information about specific hazards, visit this Web site: www.labour.gov.on.ca/english/hs
