The Ontario government is bringing in new labour laws that force employers to disclose salary information in job postings. These laws are good for both job seekers and employers. The changes include banning unpaid work and forbidding employers from deducting wages for stolen property. Employers in the province will be required to include the salary range for the position in job postings. This is similar to laws in British Columbia and Prince Edward Island. The new rules were welcomed by job seekers, as they can now have a fair shot at getting a job and will save them time. Only 37% of online job postings in Ontario last year included salary information. Some people believe that the new rules are a step in the right direction but might not solve the wage gap between men and women or different marginalized groups. This is because it’s not just about more information, but also about doing something with that information and changing behavior.
