Background

Background

The right to good conditions at work is in United Nation’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights. This is a global agreement.

The Scottish Government is committed to Fair Work. Fair Work supports the economy and the job market. We need to change the way we view work and workplaces.

The long-term effect of the pandemic on the job market may be large. It may have affected our health and wellbeing. We know that Fair Work can help mental health and wellbeing.

We are committed to working with partners to make healthy workplaces. Mental health and wellbeing is supported and spoken about.

We will help those the pandemic has affected the most. We will target support for families and households on low incomes. This will include training and employment support.

We will support the wellbeing of children and young people. We know they have been affected by the pandemic.

Good working policies have developed. Services should encourage these.

Many things effect our economy and society. All have an impact on the job market, work, on workers and on workplaces.

Many services are developing. Changes such as working patterns, skills and IT.

We will work with all sectors. Scotland should remain forward thinking for Fair Work. We should build on services working together.

Central to this is policies that deliver greater, greener and fairer success.
