SHA employee fired after “double dipping”

An employee of the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) was fired after it was found that a fraudulent scheme led to a loss of over $15,000 of public funds.

The Government of Saskatchewan said that the employee had been simultaneously employed by an external organization while receiving payment for shifts from the SHA.

The employee’s actions transpired between December of 2022 and July of this year, during which time they were allegedly double-dipping into public funds. The total loss incurred by the province during this period amounted to $15,720, as disclosed in the province’s latest official loss report.

The Government said that the matter was not referred to law enforcement.
