Since 1996 all Quebec companies with 10 employees or more are subject to the Pay Equity Act, a law that was put in place to help reduce the wage gap between equivalent predominantly male and female job classes. In addition to having to complete a pay equity analysis and/or program every 5 years, companies must also complete an annual online declaration confirming that they have complied with the law. Companies who do not comply face penalties of $1,000 to $45,000.
When confronted with the realization that your company may have to comply with pay equity the first thing many organizations ask themselves is “What do I have to do, and what is the deadline?” We can help you resolve these questions so that you will know where you stand and can take the necessary action, whether it’s completing a pay equity plan now, in the future, or by simply completing the annual declaration.
The experts at Pvisio have been helping companies comply with pay equity for over 15 years. We are familiar with the various intricacies of the law and can help you comply quickly and painlessly.
All Quebec companies with an annual salary mass of 2 million dollars or more* must comply with the 1% Training Law (officially known as the Loi sur les compétences) whereby companies must spend at least 1% of their salary mass on training every year.
The Quebec Government is performing audits now more than ever before, and many companies who thought they were in compliance have received nasty surprises, whether by owing training dollars that they were not able to adequately prove were spent, or by seeing carry-forward amounts that they’ve been banking on for leaner year simply rejected.
We can help you plan your training for the coming year to ensure that it meets the requirements of the law, and that all required documentation is produced and kept in case of an audit. Whether you would simply like to ensure that the processes and tools are in place for the company to comply on an annual basis, or whether you prefer that our team handles the process from A to Z, we are here to help.
*Note: for the years 2014 and prior companies with a salary mass of 1 million or more were subject to the law
