The Law

​​​Requirem​​​ents for STC

The Pay Equity Act was amended, effective July 1st, 1993. It introduced Proportional Value (PV) as another method to compare job classes. This method was used when female job classes did not find male comparators after applying the Job-to-Job method.

The Space Toy Co. was required to use PV to provide pay equity for the following three female jobs, unmatched under the Job-to-Job method:

  • Customer Service Clerk
  • Accounting Clerk
  • Receptionist/Typist

Although these jobs were given salary incr​eases in 1992, these were not pay equity adjustments.


The Act required Space Toy Co. to implement the Proportional Value method according to a schedule and post an amended pay equity plan by January 1st, 1994. Adjustments, if any, were to begin by the posting date, retroactive to January 1st, 1993. The Proportional Value implementation schedule is shown on the next page.
