Fourteen and 15 year-olds seeking summer jobs must complete Saskatchewan's Young Worker Readiness Certificate Course (YWRCC) before being allowed to work.

The course is designed to prepare young people for work, teach them their rights and responsibilities in the workplace and provide occupational health and safety information.

"The course has been mandatory since the end of March, so this is a timely reminder," Advanced Education, Employment and Labour Minister Rob Norris said. "Our government is committed to educating young workers about their rights and responsibilities and ensuring that their safety is a top priority."

The course can be taken online at Young workers under the age of 16 must also have the consent of their parent or guardian as one of the requirements in the Minimum Age legislation introduced last year.

"We continue to receive strong support from parents, employers and educators for our initiative," Norris said. "We hope young workers have a safe and enjoyable experience in the workplace this summer."

More than 2,300 young people have successfully completed the course since it first became available.
