Information on how to support fair work

Supporting fair work

Fair work is work that offers effective:

  • voice
  • security
  • respect
  • fulfilment
  • opportunity

It balances the rights and responsibilities of employers and workers that can benefit:

  • society
  • individuals
  • organisations

This includes keeping people motivated through an involved career path. It also involves having a whole person-centred approach to career development.

The Fair Work Convention was established in 2015, following a recommendation of the Working Together Review. Their remit is to drive forward fair work in Scotland. It is about fair work becoming a hallmark of Scotland’s workplaces and economy.
