The Premier has released the Re-Open Saskatchewan Plan to guide our province as Saskatchewan residents and our provincial economy begin to emerge from isolation. For Government of Saskatchewan employees, it is up to senior leaders and managers to use caution when considering the return of employees who have been working from home to the workplace.
The Re-Open Saskatchewan plan states that individuals should continue working from home if they can do so effectively.
Safety is the top priority for employees and citizens. Employees will return when Public Health authorities say it is safe, in a way that is safe to do so. Citizen service is a key consideration in determining if and when employees return to the workplace.
