New Challenges Conforming to Pay Equity

April 11, 2011

As you are now aware, the Commission Equite Salariale (CES ) has now demanded that all Quebec based corporations with 6 or more employees, must fill in on line a new report attesting their conformity to the Pay Equity Guidelines. ( see Below ). This directive brings to light new obligations and challenges to all Quebec based corporations. The new challenges include:

  1. The threshold for filing has been lowered to companies with 6 or more employees, although conformance is obligatory for companies of 10 or more employees
  2. Electronic filing is the only acceptable way
  3. To file, each company must have a valid "Code D'acess" which must be inserted into the electronic form "Clic SEQur Exppress" on the Revenue Quebec Website. To see the form you must first enter via www.demes.gouv.qc.ca and look at green logo on bottom of page Commencer. Note: If your corporation does not know or have its "access code" it will take a minimum of 3 weeks to obtain it after making the request via the Tel # 1-866-423-3234
  4. There is no general form to illustrate the actual document layout or content. You can only access it when you know and insert your own NEQ and followed by your own "Code D'acces"
  5. This report must be filed by all companies with 6 or more employees no later than 6 months following the submission of the annual tax returns.
  6. Please note that this information has been gathered after spending several hours on hold with both the Revenue Quebec and CES offices to-day, April 11, 2011.
