Brown Bag Session: Jurisdictional Issues Regarding Supervisory Employees

ASPA will be holding a Brown Bag session entitled:  Jurisdictional Issues Regarding Supervisory Employees.  The session will cover the following:

  • How the Saskatchewan Employment Act defines “supervisory employee.“
  • How HR determined which ASPA members are “supervisory employees.”
  • Processes going forward:  the next steps.
  • What you can do if you are on the HR list of “ASPA supervisory employees.”
  • What ASPA is doing for its members.

While the information being provided is primarily for those individuals who have already been identified as a “supervisory employee”, this session may also be of interest to any ASPA member who believes that he/she is a “supervisory employee”, but was not included on the HR list.  As always, the sessions are open to any ASPA member.

The Brown Bag Sessions will be held:

Thursday, November 3rd – 11:30 – 1:00 pm – Health A204

Tuesday, November 8th – Noon to 1:30 pm – Arts 214
