Pre-employment screening gives a potential employee and their new employer the opportunity to ensure that the employee’s health and fitness meet the demands and risks of the job. It’s also good practice because recruiting the wrong person can be costly both in financial terms and in disruption to your business.

how much worse can it get..throw you off the sick...then deny you the chance of ever working IDS and Grayling..you must be well proud

Oh my god this is utter madness!! So they say we're all meant to get jobs, and yet here they are throwing more money at ATOS to try and stop any of us 'sickies' from ever returning to work?

 

What the hell do they want us to do? Lay down and just die I suppose.

So depending on who is paying the bill a person can be well enough to work, but not well enough to work, or too sick to work but not sick enough to get paid sick benefits.

 

We could find people in the situation where they fail to get ESA, go on JSA, get a job interview where they are screened by ATOS who advise the employer to reject their application on health grounds!

 

Theey have got to trip up somewhere this just can't go on.

unfortunately this madness is going to continue for a long time to come....this company has too many fingers in too many pies.....businesses should never be involved in deciding how governments run and pay their benefits system....unfortunately as well this was a labour govt that gave us ATOS, so where do we go?

I jokingly told my mum a while ago that the government will soon realise that the sick, disabled and retired are nothing more than a drain on society. They contribute very little yet demand a lot in support.

It is not too far off the beaten track to suggest that everybody who has a pre-determined negative impact on society be given a box that contains a rapid acting 100ml syringe of Insulin and a disposable needle with the promise that the State will cover the cost of an ordinary funeral if they will self inject it.

 

Mum was not too pleased with that comment, but it left her thinking!

 

It is a sick thought, but we are slowly moving towards legalised assisted suicide as it is! It is only one more small step further on and it will sort out the country's financial problems overnight!

Maybe one day it will come to pass that us useless sickies could be made to do our bit for sociality by being 'humanely' killed and then fed to the rest of the population. Two birds, one stone and all that.

 

Yep, Soylent green is people. :(

No, not my idea, just a thought. It seems to follow on as the inevitable next step with all of these changes that they are making to the benefit system.

 

You only have to read '1984' to find similarities that were then thought of as being far fetched then but reality now.

 

Who knows what the government will propose next.

 

It seems that those that don't contribute to society and rely on welfare payments as an income are already 'sidelined' as being the 'unwashed'.

Ummm I would agree.

 

If the public were treated as assets on the Balance Sheet of Britain Plc, Cameron as its CEO and Osbourne as the FD, would quickly see that there is a considerable amount of wastage and lack of ability to earn an income, by those that are sick, disabled, unemployed and retired. As with any good business, you offload them somewhere - if they don't produce an income, they ain't worth keeping and feeding.

 

Even with animals this is the way it is - no point in keeping a cow that isn't paying its way with enough milk to sell - the poor thing ends up in a tin of dog food!

 

And maybe that is where we are destined - a tin of SPAM or such like.

They already have the machinery to do that - it's called - Mechanically Separated Meat

I believe scenarios you state are already happening and shown on this forum. A postman was declared unfit for work by ATOS in their role working alongside HR and was told had to leave job on health grounds but at ESA WCA was told fit for work so showed letter and then he says a telephone call took place outside his hearing which resulted in his work having to take him back and try and find him work......

 

And there is a cagger called Rocker60 who I believe has been told not fit enough for JSA and too fit for ESA so is stuck......

 

It has got to come to a head soon.....surely:???:

why? while we are all busy running around being passed for jsa to esa or pillar to post, and fighting our own small battles nothing will change, we have been vilified by the press as scroungers, and changing those attitudes is going to be a real uphill battle
