Types of Authorizations Requests
Extension to Post Pay Equity Plan
What can you request?
You can apply for an extension of the deadline to post the final or updated pay equity plan. (Section 112 of the Pay Equity Act).
An employer or a group of employers who needs more time to post their final or updated pay equity plan can apply to the Commissioner for an extension of the deadline set out in the Act.
We will assess:
- Why the employer is unable to complete the final pay equity plan under the legislated timeline. This includes assessing the amount of time and resources that the employer has dedicated to the pay equity exercise, taking into account their circumstances.
- If the employer has taken genuine and meaningful steps to establish the pay equity plan under the prescribed timeline.
- If it is appropriate to authorize the extension of the periods for posting the final or revised pay equity plans, in light of the purposes and goals of the Pay Equity Act.
- If the Commissioner grants the request, we will determine the appropriate time period for posting the pay equity plan.
