This site provides guidelines to fair and equitable wages and salaries.

When determining what your organization will pay for wages and salaries, it is important to understand the economic conditions of the region in which you function, the volume of potential employees and the legislative requirements in place. When determining what to pay, first consideration is placement of the role organizationally which can be determined through job evaluation/classification. The second consideration is the job relevant skills and experience the applicant possesses which may impact their placement in the salary range upon hire.
