Information request and response under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.
You asked for under FOISA, please provide the number of complaints and/or grievances about (a) bullying and (b) unacceptable behaviour within the Directorate for Local Government and Housing, in each quarter since May 2021. Please breakdown this information showing whether these complaints were about (i) another civil servant (ii) a Senior Civil Servant or (iii) a Minister
I can confirm there have been no complaints and/or grievances about (a) bullying and (b) unacceptable behaviour within the Directorate for Local Government and Housing, in each quarter since May 2021. It should be noted that managers in the Scottish Government are encouraged to deal with concerns about bullying and/or unacceptable behaviour at an early stage on an informal basis, where appropriate to do so. There is no requirement to report informal action to HR and therefore no information is held centrally about cases that have been dealt with informally.
The Scottish Government is committed to publishing all information released in response to Freedom of Information requests. View all FOI responses at http://www.gov.scot/foi-responses.
