Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 10 December 2018

To ask the Scottish Government what steps it takes to promote the Fair Work agenda among employers.

Answered by: Jamie Hepburn 20 December 2018

The Scottish Government is committed to fair work and consider it to be central to the delivery of inclusive growth. While progress has been made, we want to go further so that we use all of the levers and the financial power of the Scottish Government to achieve our vision of a Fair Work Nation by 2025. In the absence of powers over employment law, we are taking a strategic approach through a Fair Work Action Plan to and through Fair Work First we will extend fair work criteria to as many funding streams, business support grants and public contracts as we can.
