The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is an arm's length body; the following is based on information it has provided.

The EHRC currently employs eight staff in Scotland that work directly on its helpline. The EHRC employs a further 27 staff in Scotland; many of these individuals have direct contact with external organisations and individuals as part of their day-to-day responsibilities.

The number of staff who will be employed in Scotland after the new organisational design has been implemented will be determined by the EHRC in due course, as a result of ongoing work and consultations.
