A seems right.
B and E are out as they compare "jobs" to "job".
A seems the best since it has "require ....that" construction.

requires of X...to.. seems to be idiomatic.

I would go with C.

In my opinion, "Requires... that" is a better construction. I would bet on A

There are a few other ways to look at this problem.

First - this is a typical question where Subjunctive use is tested.....requires <of X> that <pay be the same ...etc.>

The prepositional phrase <of both public and private employers> is an additional non-restrictive information provided in the sentence. The sentence should remain intact even if this prepositional phrase is removed. In other words, when prepositional phrases act as adjectives they can be removed. Be careful because prepositional phrases can also act as adverbs -- The book was lying under the table

Legislation in the Canadian province of Ontario requires of both public and private employers that pay be the same for jobs historically held by women as for jobs requiring comparable skill that are usually held by men.

If you remove the prepositional phrase -

Legislation in the Canadian province of Ontario requires that pay be the same for jobs historically held by women as for jobs requiring comparable skill that are usually held by men.

You can even remove "in the canadian province of ontario" because again it is prepositional and provides additional non-restrictive information about Legislation -- the prepositional phrase acts as an adjective modifying Legislation and like all adjectives can be removed from the sentence without distorting the meaning.

Legislation requires that pay be the same for jobs historically held by women as for jobs requiring comparable skill that are[/u] usually held by men.

Now see.... requires that pay be the same is a typical subjunctive usage.
