Universal credit assessment period inflexibility

R (Johnson, Woods, Barrett and Stewart) v SSWP [2019] EWHC 23 (Admin): This case concerns a judicial review challenging the rigidity of the assessment period regime under universal credit (UC) and the way that earned income is calculated, which results in some claimants being treated as earning two monthly salaries in one assessment period. Judgment was given on 11 January 2019 finding in favour of the claimants, but the SSWP appealed. The case will be heard by the Court of Appeal on 19th May 2020.
