S5W-02969: Jackie Baillie (Dumbarton)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 19 September 2016

To ask the Scottish Government whether PACE teams receive contributions from employers to help fund their work.

Answered by: Paul Wheelhouse 30 September 2016

PACE offers free and impartial advice and is available to all individuals affected by redundancy, no matter the size of the business nor how many employees are involved. PACE also works with insolvency practitioners to provide support where a business has gone into administration or liquidation.

Employers do not provide financial contributions to PACE teams. However in cases of larger redundancies, employers may make a contribution of space and IT equipment for example to provide an onsite resource centre for employees to meet with PACE Advisers.
