Saskatchewan is holding consultations to get feedback on its new employment act.
From July 23 to Sept. 27, the province will begin consultation on the Saskatchewan Employment Act regulations. The act consolidates 12 pieces of labour legislation into one updated and comprehensive act that it says “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,” said Don Morgan, the minister of labour relations and workplace safety. “We want to continue our consultation process… by getting input on the regulations.”
The review will focus primarily on employment standards and labour relations. Some occupational health and safety technical regulations will be addressed later.
A discussion paper is available on the Ministry of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety’s website at www.lrws.gov.sk.ca/modernizing-legislation.
