Methodology and Principles for Applying Section 11 of the Canadian Human Rights Act = Methodologie et principes d'application de l'article 11 de la Loi canadienne sur les droits de la personne.
Canadian Human Rights Commission, Ottawa (Ontario).
The purpose of this paper is to help employers, employee groups, and others understand the concept of equal pay by explaining the intentions of section 11 of the Canadian Human Rights Act and the Canadian Human Rights Commission's approach to its application. It can be used as a reference by those responsible for developing pay systems or assessing systems already being used by employers to ensure compliance. The first two sections of the paper consider the background to the concept of "equal pay for equal work" and the Commission's statutory responsibility. A general description of job evaluation is then presented. Section 4 provides an example of a point factor system of job evaluation and the kind of bias that can be built in, while section 5 discusses ways to find bias in systems and to decrease risks of inequities. The final section focuses on the basic procedure for investigation and conciliation of complaints relating to Section 11 of the Act. (A French language version of the material is provided.) (YLB)
