The Scottish government has set up helplines for anyone who may be affected by the failure of the construction firm Carillion
The company went into liquidation on Monday, after running up losses on contracts and struggling with heavy debts.
Carillion employs about 20,000 people across the UK, and was involved in several major projects in Scotland.
The helplines will offer assistance to employees, apprentices and other firms.
Scotland’s economy secretary, Keith Brown, said: “We recognise this is a very worrying time for employees and companies who will be concerned for their jobs and livelihoods.
“We have set up these support lines to ensure people can get the advice they need and so we can understand the extent of this situation as we know this will affect the wider supply chain.
Please see the attached fact sheet for a full list of the support available to affected businesses. Carillion Information
