A Saskatoon-based clothes cleaning company has been fined $6,000 for failing to pay wages under the Saskatchewan Employment Act.

College Park Garment Care, operating as Custom Cleaners College Park, pled guilty to six counts under the act. It was charged, along with Brenda Lee Deck, the company’s corporate director, and Matdec Investments Ltd., for failing to pay wages within 14 days of the end of employment.

As a result of the charges, the court fined the company $714.29, plus a $285.71 victim surcharge on each of the six counts, for a total of $6,000 in fines. It also ordered the payment of $3,176.71 in outstanding wages.
