State of emergency lifts in Saskatchewan, bringing an end to public emergency layoff provisions

July 13, 2021

On July 11, 2021 the Government of Saskatchewan removed all public health orders related to COVID-19, including those applying to retail, and simultaneously lifted the state of emergency for the province. 

As a result, the Public Emergency Layoff Provisions have ended, and employers now have two weeks to either: schedule employees previously placed on a temporary layoff, or provide pay instead of notice, as required by The Employment Standards Regulations.
