Scottish Government launches package of support for employers to support their EU staff to Stay in Scotland.

The First Minister has written an open letter to all EU citizens in Scotland (this link will take you away from our website) noting the value the Scottish Government places on their contribution and urging them to stay in Scotland.

In the letter Nicola Sturgeon MSP says: “Scotland is your home, you are welcome here, and you are valued. You play a crucial role in Scotland’s economy and public services. You are a vital part of Scotland not just for the skills and talent you bring to our country but also the diversity and richness you bring to our culture and communities.”

This includes a toolkit for employers to support their EU staff to Stay in Scotland including posters, a factsheet, digital content and guides. The toolkit includes suggestions about simple things employers can do to help their EU members of staff.
