That's from Holyrood Live on Tuesday 15 January 2019.
Staff at a manufacturing plant in Livingston were allowed to carry on working despite bosses knowing they would not be paid, Scottish Enterprise told the economy committee this morning.
Around 300 Kaiam employees were told on Christmas eve they would be made redundant due to declining work levels, high costs of operation at the site and the absence of customer orders.
Workers were due to be paid on December 21 but were informed by the company that payment would be delayed.
Staff were then informed on December 24 by administrators KPMG - appointed two days earlier - they would not receive payment from the company and would have to make a claim through the insolvency service.
Scottish Enterprise indicated it had encouraged the company to inform its employees and contractors about payment.
Labour MSP Jackie Baillie responded: "I suppose knowing that they weren't going to pay people I would have expected you not to ask but demand that they share that information with workers who were going in or contractors who were engaging in contracts in good faith, knowing that they wouldn't be paid."
