Whistleblower protection for Saskatchewan public service

Public service employees in Saskatchewan would be protected from reprisals for reporting wrongdoing under the proposed Bill 147, The Public Interest Disclosure Act. Public service employers would need to designate a senior official to receive and manage information relating to wrongdoing brought to light by employees. Reprisals would be prohibited against employees who disclose information about wrongdoing, as long as they have reasonable grounds for believing it to be true. “Reprisals” would include dismissals, layoffs, suspensions, demotions, changes in job location, a reduction in wages or threats.
