Saskatchewan youth, aged 14 and 15 looking for summer employment, are being reminded that they must complete the Saskatchewan Young Worker Readiness Certificate Course if they want to work this summer.
Since 2010, more than 23 thousand teenagers have completed the course.
The mandatory job readiness course teaches youth about their rights and responsibilities as it relates to health, safety and labour standards in the workplace.
While young workers are able to apply for jobs and go for interviews before completing the certificate, they must provide a copy of the completed certificate to their employer on or before their first day of work.
They will also need the consent of their parent or guardian in order to work.
