S5W-14133: Kezia Dugdale (Lothian)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 29 January 2018

To ask the Scottish Government what support will be offered to workers affected by the liquidation of the construction company, Carillion.

Answered by: Keith Brown 26 February 2018

The Scottish Government has been liaising with Cabinet Office, the Official Receiver and PricewaterhouseCoopers to ensure that information on support through our initiative for responding to redundancy situations, Partnership Action for Continuing Employment (PACE) is available for Scottish based employees affected by developments at Carillion.

By providing a range of support, PACE aims to minimise the time individuals affected by redundancy are out of work. The package of support is tailored and includes one to one counselling, information on rights and entitlements, financial advice, skills development and help with job search.
