Modernizing Employment and Labour Relations Legislation
That's why your government is improving Saskatchewan's labour legislation - to protect workers, promote growth and support our vibrant provincial economy.
The Saskatchewan Employment Act is a modern and innovative Act that restructures existing provisions, eliminates inconsistencies and more accurately reflects contemporary employment relationships. The intent of the law is to protect the health and safety of Saskatchewan workers, ensure minimum standards of employment, improve compliance with regulatory standards, and ensure effective enforcement of labour laws in the province.
The latest round of consultations regarding the modernization of Saskatchewan’s labour legislation has drawn 243 responses, bringing the total number of submissions to just over 4,000 since consultations began in May 2012.
We wish to thank the many stakeholders who participated in the public consultations process. The submissions will be carefully reviewed and considered before The Saskatchewan Employment Act is voted on during the current session of the Legislative Assembly. After the law is passed, further consultations will occur on the regulations to modernize and address any new requirements.
