Abstract

Disabled employees in the British public sector lodge more claims of discrimination at Employment Tribunals than their private sector counterparts, yet their claims are more likely to fail. We argue that this is because disabled employees in the British public sector are more aware of equality issues than their private sector counterparts, subjectively perceiving discrimination. Yet the policies and practices that result from representative bureaucracy and the equality duties found only in the public sector result in judges mostly finding that disability discrimination in the public sector has not occurred, compared to such discrimination in the private sector.
