Saskatchewan Seeks Input on Minimum Age and Worker Transportation Regulations

By CO Staff @canadaone |

Saskatchewan -- The minimum wage board will conduct a review of provincial regulations to determine whether current regulations regarding minimum age and transportation home for workers who finish work between the hours of 12:30 and 7:00 a.m. should be changed.

Workers must currently be 16 years of age to work in hotels, restaurants, educational institutions, hospitals and nursing homes. As well, if an employee in those workplaces finishes work between the hours of 12:30 and 7:00 a.m. the employee must provide transportation home.

The Board expects input on issues such as whether there needs to be any minimum age for employment, whether employers should have to provide transportation home for late-night employees and whether the types of workplaces to which these regulations apply (hotels, restaurants, educational institutions, hospitals and nursing homes) should be increased, reduced, or left the same.

The Board will receive written submissions from February 15th to May 1st. Submissions to the Minimum Wage Board can be e-mailed to: or mailed to:
The Saskatchewan Minimum Wage Board
#400 - 1870 Albert Street
Regina, SK
S4P 4W1
