Company and employment law are matters which are currently reserved to the UK Government. As such, actions which might be taken by the Scottish Government or its agencies depend on the terms and conditions associated with any grant provided from public funds, including the possibility of seeking repayment of any funding where such terms and conditions have not been met.
