The no vote in Scotland - A closer look at Employment

DWF has a strong Scottish offering and works for a number of major clients with interests in the country. From a business perspective, the issues around currency, regulatory environments and EU membership no longer need to be resolved; but clients can be reassured that DWF understands the changing situation, and can be relied on to offer solutions whatever happens with newly devolved powers.

Following the outcome of the Referendum on 18 September – the position of employment within Scotland seems to be clearer. Employment law is not devolved to the Scottish Parliament and there appear to be no plans within the enhanced devolution proposals to change that. Because we work extensively both with and within Scotland, the impact of any changes are at the forefront of our minds; clients can be reassured that we are ready to help and advise without political bias, offering them solutions that anticipate and respond to the changing situation.
