Fair Work First: guidance to 30 June 2023

Guidance on Fair Work First criteria for public sector grants and contracts. Applies to funding awarded up to 30 June 2023.

Fair Work First relationship with the Scottish Business Pledge

The Scottish Business Pledge, like Fair Work First, aims to promote fairness, equality and opportunity in Scotland, helping to create greater economic success and sustainable, inclusive growth.

Accordingly, the Fair Work First criteria is included in the Business Pledge: three of the criteria are core elements of the Pledge and two other criteria are reflected in the optional elements of the Pledge. Some elements of the Pledge cover issues that are wider than Fair Work, including addressing issues such as environmental impact, innovation and internationalisation; while the adoption of fair work will have a positive impact on these elements they are not included in Fair Work First criteria.
