New Legislation Would Require Employers to Post Salary Expectations

The Ontario government is set to introduce legislation that would require employers to include expected salary ranges in job postings.

If passed, the legislation would also make Ontario the first jurisdiction in Canada to require businesses to disclose if artificial intelligence is used during their hiring process.

The government says women in Ontario earn an average of $0.87 for every dollar earned by men – a number that is worse for racialized and Indigenous women. The province says Including salary ranges with job postings can help close the gender pay gap while allowing companies to find qualified candidates more quickly and improve retention, helping tackle the nearly 250,000-person labour shortage.

The government will also be conducting consultations and detailed analysis on ending the use of Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs) in the settlement of cases of workplace sexual harassment, misconduct or violence.

“The consultations will identify legislative options to restrict the use of NDAs while protecting the rights of victims and survivors,” said David Piccini, Minister of Labour, Immigration, Training and Skills Development “It’s past time we end a practice that allows businesses to shelter the behaviour of some of the worst members of our communities,’’ he said.

The Ford Government says the changes are part of a larger package that, if passed, would expand on actions introduced in the Working for Workers Acts, 2021, 2022 and 2023, which will be unveiled in the coming days.
