22 April 2024

Recently, the Government of British Columbia has introduced new pay transparency laws that impose obligations on employers relating to the disclosure of information about employee compensation. The Government of Ontario has also recently introduced legislation that, if passed, will require more transparency in job postings, including regarding employee compensation.

Join our panel of experienced employment lawyers for an in-depth discussion about these new legal requirements in this on-demand webinar. The panel discussion will answer the following key questions:

  • Can employers ask job applicants about their compensation history?
  • What information must be included in a job posting?
  • What information are employers not allowed to include in a job posting?
  • What is a pay transparency report and what are the requirements to submit one?
  • Are employers allowed to enforce confidentiality regarding employee compensation, and can they impose disciplinary measures if employees disclose such information?

This program is eligible for up to 1 hour(s) of substantive CPD credits with the LSO, the LSBC and the Barreau Du Québec.
