Japan's Chief Cabinet Secretary says ministers will meet on Tuesday to discuss ways to ensure that employment quotas will be met for people with disabilities.
Yoshihide Suga announced the step on Monday following the recent revelation that government ministries and local authorities inflated their disabled staff numbers.
NHK has learned that there are about half as many people with disabilities employed by the Japanese government's ministries as figures suggest.
Administrative institutions and businesses are required by law to hire a certain amount of people with disabilities. The labor and welfare ministry has been investigating government offices after it was learned that more than 10 had inflated their numbers.
