  1. Hi The WTA is contractual only in itself, it hard to understand why your employer has added this to their contract. As it is enforceable on both you and the Employer without any recourse to a contractual term. You can't be made to sign anything that would enable you to work more than 48 hours unless you want to, as such a decision would not be enforceable [in the case of requiring you to work more than 48 hours] in law. Moreover if they did that would be grounds for walking away from your job However that aside i think Sidewinders advise is good here. Think about yourself and your futur
  2. Hi Appeals are independent from the DWP and JCP, which is why 40% of all appeals are upheld and up to 70% when the customer is assisted. Ask the Judge if you can speak for the Customer (edit) Don't panic and think positively I have been waiting for 17 & 12 months for my two appeals and no sign of either of them surfacing this side of Easter.
  3. First the Car, i can drive and my wife helps me and out of the car which is automatic, also the seat has a cushion fitted that inflates and turns. No they wont let me have a second WCA which i requested as the problems of my toilet and temporary paralysis has occurred since my original WCA [ i figured that they are refusing a second WCA is that my points value would go up to around 45 and as i have no control over voiding my bowels that would a definite no no for ability to work etc]. I am also the person who cost the DWP millions in changes to their procedures because of my complaint to the
  4. This is all good stuff Sadly the Chief medical officers has advised that the getting up from a chair is not relevant to the workplace, this is planned to reflected in changes to the ESA2008 act. However on the good news front my claim for ESA was made before any proposed changes so any new changes do not affect me However it does mean that my Toilet problem has more resonance than my getting out of a chair.
  5. Hi Some HPI checking companies also have insurance of they cock up, worth checking the docs for the HPI check
  6. Hi Its also an offense not to notify the DVLA of a chnage of address to your driving license
  7. Hi I have just received a NIP which says that either my wife or me had jumped a red light in our car The letter was dated 16th December 2010 for an offense dated 13th December 2010. As i was the driver my wife will be returning the form by record delivery on the 15th January [27 days after the nip was issued. So far so good. However we are about to go abroad for in my case until July 2011 [8 Months] and we intend to put a letter in the NIP telling them that Given that they have to prosecute these things with 6 months of then being committed, by my warning them I am going away does
  8. Hi The best guide to any medical assessment and how it affects you are the Employment and Support Allowance Regulations, as these will become the standard for all Medical benefits in future. As for a self help guide well you at one the moment, have a look at previous questions and you will soon pick up hints and tips. As for your own condition is there no self-help group in your area?
  9. Hi If its fair why is it under review? EDIT s**m dont live in the real world Atos are the Quislings of the EDIT world
  10. Hi Yer i figure that but the DM is very sure of him self. I did find the latest Chief medical officers advice also refers to 'without receiving phsyical assistance from somebody else' and that was dated August 2010 Sp i suppose i will have to wait until my appeal in the mean time i have to travel to these useless Working link interviews where they turn their eyes to the sky when i 'walk' through the door as they are expected to get me into work. I also think i have scored another 15 points for my Toilet problem which is probably why the DM wont let me have a second WCA?
  11. Thanks everybody Have to say that my problem is more technical than not scoring points i have enough points. But the DM has said that because my armchair at home [i was WCA/medically assessed at home] has an electric motor and i was able to push the buttons that means i have no problems in standing up or sitting down [oh and move to a second chair, even though the second chair would also have to be fitted with a motor]. He is infect saying that the word Something, which is what a chair motor is has the same meaning as Somebody [which i take to mean a human person and is the word used in the
  12. Yes they can. that's when the problems for an employee come in, as the law requires you to be flexible, which is why you have to ask your employer to explane the justification etc. Changing working hours may not be as simple of benefits to the business either [although it has to said what other reason can their be] they may have to make reasonable adjustment for a disabled employee for instance. That right would come above your right to have a flexible pattern of work:-(
  13. Hi You can also cast a dispersion on the phrase 'there is doubt about your entitlement to the claim' which they will use in their letter when they tell you that you are being investigated [this is a standard letter and should not be read to mean that they are investigating anything]
  14. Hi Its ok and thank anyway i eventually found what i was looking for Have to say that is a farce if the guy doesn't have any ability with mental Health issues then how can he relate what the op is telling him to a working environment
  15. Yo dude that's great and well done I don't need any additional evidence as mine is about interpretation of the rules
  16. Hi No i recon that the DWP and the government have got it in for me anyway. I'm the guy whose FOI action caused the DWP millions to put right the cock up they made Besides which as you might have guessed my MP is a tory. The Tory answer to the unemployed is Concentration Camps But thanks anyway
  17. Hi Ok you need to pin them down about an appointment time outside of your normal signing times [they also have to pay you public transport costs] You say that you work flexibly ok no problem, the JCP will have other people to see as well as you on a given day, ask for a day but not a time then you can pop in for the last appointment? Also your employer might be more willing to assist you with this than you think, have you asked them to vary the working hours so that you can attend the JCP, also flexibility is a two way street (edit) Does you local office have an early opening or is t
  18. Hi After reading this fantastic site and offering my own help, i have realized there is something i need help with. I want to check that the GP who conducted my WCA is qualified to deal with mental health issues, i have to fight my own appeal Do we have a Template letter and address of the GMC so that I can ask
  19. Hi You get 6 months to apply for a job in your field [protected employment] after that you have to apply for any job that it is reasoanble to assume you can do [training to do a job is assumed by the JCP to be the responsibility of the employer]. So a retail worker can do office or wearhouse work but not drive a truck as they need a HGV licence to do so. Some jobs however do not come with automatic protected status, ditch digging road sweeping for example. If you are send for a job that is within 60mins by public transport you have to go [cost is irelevent] and show willing however that do
