Vaccine Policies and Employers Rights
There have been several questions about what SCSA members can do to implement vaccine policies. The Government of Saskatchewan has introduced new regulations to allow employers to choose to require evidence of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result from employees before they enter the workplace. The legislative framework for creating a vaccine or testing policy is available at this link: and the government has supplied several links and resources for employers, including frequently asked questions.
Under these regulations, developing and following a written COVID-19 Vaccination or Negative Test Policy would be good practice.
Policy templates are available at this link (links to CODC).
For specific advice on developing a suitable COVID-19 Vaccination/Negative Test or connected Human Resources Policies, SCSA members should seek professional legal or human resources advice. Industry associations may also assist.
