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.

Strategic context

Scotland is leading the way in creating a wellbeing economy; delivering sustainable and inclusive growth for the people of Scotland. This means creating a more resilient economy where businesses can thrive, innovate and create good quality jobs in a way that enhances quality of life, reduces inequalities and is compatible with a net zero, sustainable economy.

The strategic ambitions for Fair Work are set out in the Fair Work Convention's Framework (2016). In response to this, the Scottish Government set out the actions it will take forward to achieve this agenda in its Fair Work Action Plan (2019). Fair Work is central to achieving the government's priority for sustainable and inclusive growth, through which everyone in Scotland can contribute to and benefit from our country's success.
