Ottawa has a new blueprint for pay equity in the federal sector.

The current complaints-based system, in place since 1977, “lacks clarity and has resulted in uncertainty, tension and frustration,” said Beth Bilson, chair of the Pay Equity Task force which presented its report Pay Equity: A New Approach to a Fundamental Right, on Wednesday.

Among its 113 recommendations, the task force called for the complaints-based system to be replaced with a new proactive model.
