Title of the presentation: “Using the Canadian Employer-Employee Dynamics Database to study the role of firm-specific policies in explaining the gender pay gap”.

Using data from the Canadian Employer-Employee Dynamics Database between 2001 and 2015, we examine the impact of firms’ hiring and pay-setting policies on the gender earnings gap in Canada. Consistent with the existing literature and following Card, Cardoso, and Kline (2016), we find that firm-specific premiums explain nearly one quarter of the 26.8% average earnings gap between female and male workers. On average, firms’ hiring practices – due to difference in the relative proportion of women hired at high-wage firms, or sorting – and pay-setting policies – due to differences in pay by gender within similar firms – each explain about one half of this firm effect. The compositional difference between the two channels varies substantially over the life-cycle, by parental and marital status, and across provinces.
 
The paper is available here.

A virtual coffee question period will follow from 2pm to 2:30pm.
