Government of Saskatchewan proposed Labour Legislation Changes 
July 10, 2012  

We are now within the short ninety day consultation period ending July 31, 2012 and will forward concerns to our provincial government regarding the proposed massive overhaul and amalgamation of 15 acts of Saskatchewan labour legislation. A draft of proposed changes will not be available until fall of 2012.

The Government of Saskatchewan is proposing to modernize, simplify and amalgamate labour legislation as well as explore the creation of a Saskatchewan Employment Code.

The intent of the review is to: (1) restructure and re-organize the legislation so it is easier to use and understand; (2) eliminate inconsistencies to reduce confusion; and (3) clarify which legislation applies in particular situations.

Some examples of the topics under consideration are: essential services legislation, union financial disclosure, notice requirements, collection of employees' wages after business closure, variable hours of work to meet needs of both employers and employees, and indexation of the minimum wage.

"Labour legislation has a significant impact on most people in the province," Labour Relations and Workplace Safety Minister Don Morgan said. "It needs to be easy to understand and effectively address the needs of employers and employees. Consultations play a key role in the development of this new labour legislation which will help provide context and a balanced approach to our work. We have prepared a discussion paper that includes questions on a range of issues to assist stakeholders in developing feedback and to initiate discussion."

Stakeholders and interested parties are encouraged to send written input to:

Ministry of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety

300 - 1870 Albert Street, Regina, SK S4P 4W1

or submit electronically to: labourlegislationLRWS@gov.sk.ca
