Challenging work capability assessment decisions
The work capability assessment (WCA) applies in both employment and support allowance (ESA) and universal credit (UC). Claimants who fail the WCA can challenge that on appeal, but need support and advice. This course looks at appeal issues and tactics, including the developing body of caselaw.
The course covers:
- Entitlement to benefit while challenging a decision
- Submissions, medical evidence and other tactical issues
- Mandatory reconsideration – problems and practice
- Important work capability assessment caselaw
This course is aimed at advisers with a working knowledge of ESA and UC, including of challenging decisions. It concentrates on issues concerning the WCA and appeal tactics. For those new to representing, see Representing at the First-tier Tribunal on page 25.
