SASKATCHEWAN GOVERNMENT TO CONSULT ON THE SASKATCHEWAN EMPLOYMENT ACT REGULATIONS

The Government of Saskatchewan continues to seek feedback on The Saskatchewan Employment Act. 

From Jul. 23 to Sept. 27, the government will begin consultation on The Saskatchewan Employment Act regulations.  The Act consolidates 12 pieces of labour legislation into one updated and comprehensive Act that protects workers, promotes growth and increases accountability.

“Now that The Saskatchewan Employment Act has been passed, there is a need to modernize the related regulations,” Minister of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety Don Morgan said.  “We want to continue our consultation process with the people of Saskatchewan by getting input on the regulations.”

This review focuses primarily on employment standards and labour relations; there are a number of occupational health and safety technical regulations that will be addressed later.

“We are very proud of The Saskatchewan Employment Act which reflects best practices and balances the needs of workers and workplaces across our province,” Morgan said.  “This new legislation clarifies the rights and responsibilities of Saskatchewan employers, employees and the unions that represent organized workers.”

“Consultations played a key role in the development of this new labour legislation,” Morgan added.  “We will continue to work with the Minister’s Advisory Committee to help provide context and a balanced approach to our work on the associated regulations.”

The government has posted a discussion paper which can be found on the Ministry of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety’s website.  Stakeholders and interested parties may provide their feedback in writing to:

Ministry of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety
300 - 1870 Albert Street, Regina, SK S4P 4W1
