The mandate of the Pay Equity Office (PEO) is to administer and enforce Ontario's Pay Equity Act, which is intended to eliminate systemic gender discrimination in the compensation of work primarily performed by women.
To carry out this mandate, the PEO provides education and advice to employers, employees and bargaining agents in the public and private sectors to achieve and maintain pay equity in their workplaces. PEO also investigates complaints, monitors workplaces for compliance, attempts to effect settlements of issues between the parties and issues orders for compliance where necessary.
The Pay Equity Hearings Tribunal, a quasi-judicial tri-partite administrative tribunal, is responsible for adjudicating disputes arising under the Pay Equity Act.
