  • How best can businesses, workers and the economy be supported during the Covid-19 crisis?

    Created: 09/04/2020

    On the 7 April 2020, The Economy, Energy and Fair Work Committee issued a call for views from Scottish businesses and workers on the current Covid-19 crisis. The committee is launching a rolling inquiry that will consider how best businesses and employees can be supported during this time. The committee is also keen to hear views on how economic recovery can be supported once the crisis has abated.

    The Committee will use feedback received to recommend how the Government should provide effective support that mitigates the impact the virus is having on businesses and workers.Unusual for a parliamentary inquiry, the committee has set no deadline for responses. 

    The call for views will remain open on an ongoing basis and will provide a forum for raising issues of concern and for highlighting best practice in delivering economic support to business and workers.
