Released on September 12, 2018
A Blaine Lake company pleaded guilty to failing to provide records requested by an Employment Standards Officer in Blaine Lake Provincial Court on September 6, 2018.
Numbered company 101100505 Saskatchewan Ltd., operating as Blaine Lake Gas Plus Creta Pizza was fined $1,000 plus a surcharge of $400 under The Saskatchewan Employment Act.
One additional charge against the company and two charges against the director of the company were withdrawn.
Charges stem from Employment Standards complaints about unpaid wages received between September 28 and December 27, 2016. Records were not provided to the Employment Standards Officer when they were requested. The officer determined that employees were owed $598.82 in unpaid wages. That amount has since been paid to the employees.
The Employment Standards Division at Labour Relations and Workplace Safety recovered more than $2.1 million in unpaid wages in 2017-18.
