A Saskatchewan construction company has been fined $1,400 for not paying wages.

Langman Contracting pled guilty in court to violating one count of the province’s employment standards legislation. The plea comes after the company, and its corporate directors Graeme Langman and Vaughn Langman, were charged with one violation under the Saskatchewan Employment Act for failing to pay wages within 14 days of the end of employment.

The company was fined $1,000 plus a victim surcharge of $400. All employee wages were collected, and the charges against Graeme Langman and Vaughn Langman were dropped.

The Ministry of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety encourages healthy, safe and productive workplaces by setting, promoting and enforcing employment and occupational health and safety standards, it said in a press release.
