Regina – The Saskatchewan government is asking for public feedback on hours of work, wages, regulation of tips and other employment issues as part of its review of the employment standards provisions in Part II of The Saskatchewan Employment Act and regulations.

A discussion paper is available at and focuses on:

  • Application of employment standards and definitions of employer and employee
