Achieving Equality in our Public Services
A report commissioned by the Public Sector Partnership Workstream to collate Mainstreaming Reports from 111 organisations found that the average employment rate for disabled people with only 2% with most organisations having a rate below 5%.
Additionally, the reports from these organisations indicated that a high level of staff (36%) have unknown or undeclared disabilities. Finally, the research highlighted that within the public sector in Scotland, there is no consistent and transparent methodology for monitoring disability within the public sector workforce. Whilst some bodies report fully and in detail, others do not report publicly at-all and a wide range of methodologies are used to establish the number of disabled employees.
