Scottish Local Authorities (SLAs) have been and are expected to promote Fair and Decent Work (FDW). Drawing on semi-structured interviews with Human Resource (HR) and Organization Development (OD) personnel the evidence and challenges of FDW are mapped. This study will show that some SLAs seem to be or claim to be leading in FDW yet others may appear reluctant to commit beyond meeting statutory obligations. The status of FDW in SLAs matters to managers, and more broadly if SLAs are to convincingly advocate FDW more widely in local and national contexts.
