Jo's responsibilities will include the Post Office, consumer protection issues, working with Vince Cable to encourage wider employee share ownership, flexible working and shared parental leave.
Commenting Jo said:
"I am delighted to be Minister for Employment Relations and Consumer Affairs and Equalities Minister. It will be a new and exciting challenge.
"Ensuring a sustainable future for the post office, flexible parental leave and giving employees and consumers a fair deal are all issues that matter to people across the UK and right here in East Dunbartonshire."
