Michelle McKinnon has been quoted in the article “British Columbia Rolls Out Pay Transparency Requirements,” published by SHRM.
Writes Catherine Skrzypinski: “The government in British Columbia (B.C.) enacted the Pay Transparency Act in May to improve pay equity and address systemic discrimination that indigenous women, women of color, immigrant women, women with disabilities and nonbinary people face in the workplace.”
Says Michelle: “Data collection on the gender pay gap has only focused on men and women to date…. By including employees who are transgender, gender-diverse or nonbinary, the collection of data will be more accurate. This will be aligned with how employees have identified themselves in the workplace when it comes to enrolling in benefit plans and health insurance.”
The article also includes insights from compensation specialists Annika Reinhardt and Laura Gale. Earlier this summer, Michelle, Annika, and Laura were joined by Dianne Rideout to host a Cassels webinar regarding this new legislation. Learn more here.
