What difference would independence make to laws on unfair dismissal, employment tribunals, industrial relations and trade union rules?

Answer: The current Scottish Government would reverse recent changes introduced at Westminster which reduce key aspects of workers’ rights.

While each element of employment regulation has individual impacts, taken together as a system, they need to balance the twin objectives of protecting the rights of employees and encouraging companies to grow and create good quality jobs.

The current Scottish Government would reverse recent changes introduced at Westminster which reduce key aspects of workers’ rights. For example on independence we will restore a 90 days consultation period for redundancies affecting 100 or more employees. Further detail of the current Scottish Government’s proposed approach in this area is set out in Chapter 3.
