The case of a Saskatoon employer whose truck was seized after an employee used a cell phone has prompted the Saskatchewan government to ask for a review.

Kevin Boychuk said it's not fair that his truck was impounded for a week under the cellphone law, costing his excavation business thousands of dollars.

On Friday, the government said it has heard the concerns and the Minister responsible for SGI has asked officials at the insurance company to review the regulations.

The government says it will consider making it easier for employers to get their impounded vehicles back more quickly. However, it says police will continue to impound vehicles regardless of who owns them.
