Job Seeker Protection

Under section 2-5 of The Saskatchewan Employment Act, no person can request or receive money from job seekers for help in finding employment. This includes employment agencies and employers.

Employers can hire firms or individuals to recruit employees for them. Job seekers may pay fees to advertise their availability as part of a job search.

Note: Agencies involved in foreign worker recruitment require licensing under The Foreign Worker Recruitment and Immigration Services Act. Please visit for more information about foreign worker recruitment and immigration consultant responsibilities.

Prohibited Fees for Finding Employment

Employers and/or employment agencies cannot require job seekers to pay for finding or getting a job. Employee recruitment is a business cost. If a person pays an employer or an employment agency for a job, either up-front, as a fee, or later through a deduction from wages, Employment Standards can recover that money as unpaid wages.

Recovering Illegal Fees

Under the law, any illegal fees are considered wages owing, and can be recovered by Employment Standards on behalf of a job seeker.

Employment Advertising

Job seekers may pay fees to advertise their availability as part of a job search.
