Scottish Employment Injuries Advisory Council Bill

I have launched a proposed Bill to establish a Scottish Employment Injuries Advisory Council (SEIAC).

The Scotland Act 2016 secured the devolution of a range of social security powers, including over industrial injuries.

Working with Trade Unions, third sector organisations and the business community, I have identified the need for a new Scottish Employment Injuries Advisory Council to shape, inform and scrutinise the social security supports available to people who are injured in the course of their employment, through no fault of their own.

The proposed Bill will ensure that the Council includes a range of experts, including relevant medical experts, trade unions and representatives who best understand workers’ lived experience and views of workplace injury and disease.
