Exclusive to Canadian HR Reporter from Rudner Law.
Advertising for a job is about as straightforward as it gets, right? All you need to do is outline the duties, the qualifications, the location, and where necessary, that the company will provide accommodation. The salary could remain unmentioned until the interview process – or even the offer stage.
That was the case for all of Canada until May 2023, when British Columbia enacted its Pay Transparency Act (which came into effect in November). Under this law, an employer must include an expected pay range for all public job postings.
