Wage Adjustments to Achieve Pay Equity
To establish pay equity, a comparison of all predominantly female or male categories must be performed within a single company. If the exercise demonstrates inferior wages for a female category with comparable value, a wage adjustment (increase) must be made for the feminine category. Although, should the predominantly female category have a higher wage there will not be a reduction in their remuneration to redress differences.
Generally, the wage correction can be made in one (1) payment or five (5) instalments over a period of four (4) years.
