What is Fair Work?

The Scottish Government's vision of fair work is that jobs and opportunities should be meaningful, sustainable and underpinned by a package of training.  Advancing equality and inclusion and working to eliminate discrimination are central to the Young Person's Guarantee.

Employers are being asked to adopt fair working practices through:

  • Appropriate channels for effective voice, such as trade union recognition
  • Investment in workforce development
  • No inappropriate use of zero hours contracts
  • Action to tackle the gender pay gap and create a more diverse and inclusive workspace
  • Payment of the real living wage

How to support and create an inclusive and fair workplace

By adopting fair work practices and improving the equality and inclusion practice of your organisation you can attract and retain talent from a diverse group of employees. While these actions are not exclusive to young people, the wider approach of the organisation will benefit the young people in the workforce.
