Denying or Revoking an Employment Standards Permit

The Executive Director of Employment Standards can cancel or revoke a permit for any lawful reason including:

  • If the employer coerces employees into supporting an application for a permit;
  • If the employer has outstanding health, safety or employment standards complaints; 
  • If the safety of employees might be in jeopardy as a result of the permit; or
  • If there is a history of multiple violations of The Saskatchewan Employment Act over a period of time. This includes violations under the previous Labour Standards Act.

Prior to cancelling a permit, the Executive Director will give the employer written notice of the Executive Director’s intention to cancel the permit, the reasons, and provide the employer with a 30-day period to make written representations as to why the permit should not be cancelled. The Executive Director will then provide a written decision.

The Executive Director may also receive anonymous complaints regarding a permit, in which case it may be reconsidered.
