The report includes details of action being taken to integrate the public sector equality duty across Scottish Government functions.  It includes details of policies and processes.  It includes employee information disaggregated by equality characteristic and a gender pay gap calculation.  The report also includes a set of equality outcomes.

Customer Behaviour

This Unacceptable Actions Policy sets out the SPPA's approach to the relatively few complainants whose actions or behaviour we consider unacceptable.  The term complainant includes anyone acting on behalf of a complainant or who contacts our office in connection with a complaint.  The principles set out in this Policy also apply to our dealings with people other than complainants.
