Legal Challenge to Welfare Reforms. Will Others Follow?

with 45 comments

The Legal Challenge to Welfare Reform is in the news today.

The BBC says, “A group representing 270 disability charities is launching legal action to obtain a judicial review of the government’s plans for welfare changes.

Ministers want to replace Disability Living Allowance with Personal Independence Payment, saving £2bn.

But Disability Alliance said ministers had not properly assessed the negative impact of the changes and that they did not comply with the Equality Act.”

The Disability Alliance reports,

You may have heard that Disability Alliance might be taking legal action against the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) over some Government welfare plans. Our legal advisors, Unity Law, have examined Government plans and believe there is a very credible case.

Disability Alliance is especially concerned over plans to abolish Disability Living Allowance (DLA) for working age people (defined as 16-64 years of age by DWP) and introduce a new benefit (Personal Independence Payment – PIP) which will have a £2.17 billion lower budget by 2015. PIP will not provide an equivalent level of support for the 652,000 disabled people currently receiving low rate care DLA payments. More Here.

Launchpad gives some background concerns,

 on benefit ‘reform’, the first ESA appeals were received in January 2009. Since that time, up to April of each year, there have been:

1,300 ESA appeals lodged in 2008-09
126,800 ESA appeals lodged in 2009-10
197,400 ESA appeals lodged in 2010-11
50,100 mental health claimants appealed and 21,200 were successful, giving a 42% chance of success on appeal.That would seem to indicate something very,very amiss with the atos assessments.

The tribunals service is creaking under this level of demand,but once appeals from newly reassessed IB benefit claimants who’ve not secured ESA really come through, then the system will be overwhelmed (and yet legal aid for welfare benefits advice is being axed..) leaving many in straitened limbo…Here.

Will the Unemployed be able to challenge the Mandatory Work Activity?

The Work Programme site gives grounds to think so – here.

  1. If you want to annoy your WP provider you could try applying for loads of jobs that are under 16 hpw. As I understand it, as long as you are still signing on they don’t get a Job Outcome payment.

    • They will just raise numerous vexatious sanction doubts against you.

      For example, TNG under Flexible New Deal…. they spend 80% of staff resources on trying to sanction everyone! Its sad they couldn’t spend the same time trying to get people into jobs!

      They must receive payments for sanction doubts… otherwise it just wouldn’t be in their interests to bother.

Well, I can think of lots of reasons 🙂 Hmm…it makes good TV, is entertaining, fills half an hour between Eastenders and Cops & Robbers, acts as propaganda, furthers the “agenda” (whatever it is), casts the unemployed in a bad light, is make work for tv production staff, gets Emma Harrison’s and Digby Jones’s ugly faces on TV and gives exposure to their enormous, repulsive fat backsides. I am sure their is more. It is not as if the BBC’s raison d’être is Campaigning for Unemployed Rights 🙂

      the reason is because it would suggest that the programmes/courses/provision the government via the DWP puts jobseekers on is not to help them but to try and sanction them potentially putting them into destitution. this would possibly indicate illegal behavior and it would indicate that the joke courses may also be puishment rather than help- which is not what labour or the tories are presenting them as. you guys seem to be more cynical/pesimistic than i am and I’m prettty damn cynical these days. btw by bbc i was really thinking media in general but more objective channels compared to right wing rags.

      I dont see how it will be possible to win the argument against the tories and parts of labour in wider society unless at least a substantial proportion of the broadsheet media can be brought on side.

        I’ve never heard anything about FND sanctioning people for profit, but I think ATOS get paid a bonus for every sick person they kick off ESA, so it’s not like the government doesn’t have previous form in this area. 🙂

      This means networking for workfare opportunities?!

  5. Research says low paying jobs damage future employment prospects

    New research by University of Warwick economist Professor Mark Stewart reveals that being in a low paying job damages your prospects of finding new employment as much as being in a sustained period of unemployment.

    While unemployment is viewed as a bad signal by prospective employers, economists have speculated that being in a low-quality job may well be an equally bad signal. Professor Stewart has investigated this hypothesis and looks at how the overall employment prospects of people in low paid jobs compared on the one hand with those on higher rates of pay and on the other hand with those who are unemployed.

    Professor Stewart looked at data on 4739 individuals over six years in the British Household Panel Survey (BHPS) from 1991 to 1996 (chosen to be prior to the introduction of the National Minimum Wage). He identified those earning less than £3.50 hour (in 1997 terms) as being low paid.

    His study found that employees in a low wage job are 2.7 times as likely to be unemployed a year later as those who were higher paid. Professor Stewart also found that the probability of reentering unemployment for someone who gets a low-wage job after a spell of unemployment is twice that for someone with the same characteristics who manages to get a higher paid job after the unemployment spell.

    His research also established that being in a period of low waged employment had almost the same detrimental affect on future employment prospects as a period of actual unemployment.

    Professor Stewart said:

    “Low-wage jobs act as the main conduit for repeat unemployment. The results in this paper suggest that not all jobs are ‘good’ jobs, in the sense of improving future prospects, and that low-wage jobs typically do not lead on to better things. If unemployed individuals’ future employment prospects are to be permanently improved, they need to find jobs where they can augment their skills (for example through training) and move up the pay distribution. Low paid jobs typically do not provide this.”

    The research paper, entitled “The interrelated dynamics of unemployment and low-wage employment”, was published in the Journal of Applied Econometrics.

  7. Eric Pickles’ office warned PM on welfare reforms

    A government department warned that a key Tory policy on welfare reform could result in 20,000 people being made homeless in the UK, it has emerged.

    A letter from the communities secretary’s office also warned the PM a benefits cap for unemployed families was likely to cost more than it saved.

    It was written by Eric Pickles’ private secretary and leaked to the Observer.

    A government source said it would not get into a “running commentary” on the plan and the letter was six months old.

    BBC political correspondent Gary O’Donoghue said Conservative sources had stressed that the two-page memo was old. He said this was not a “current row”.

    The letter was not written by Mr Pickles himself and he was “fully behind” the policy, his spokesman said.

    The memo was written by Nico Heslop, Mr Pickles’ private secretary, and sent to Mr Cameron’s private secretary, Matthew Style.

    ‘Net cost’

    The letter said the department supported the principle of the benefits cap “on the grounds of fairness” because it was “not right that a household on benefit should receive more than the average working household”.

    But it said the cap could cause some “very serious practical issues”.

    It said the policy could result in 20,000 people being made homeless across the UK.

    This figure was “on top of the 20,000 additional acceptances already anticipated as a result of other changes to housing benefit”, it said.

    It outlined concerns an estimated £270m in savings from the measure did not take into account the financial implications of the policy for local authorities who would have to help more families into housing.

    It said the policy “could generate a net cost.”

    The letter said the department was worried about the impact of the policy on its ability to build social housing for families.

    “To fund new affordable housing development providers need to be able to charge rents of up to 80% of the market levels but the impact of the overall benefit cap will prevent them from doing so in many areas greatly reducing their financial capacity,” it said.

    “Initial analysis suggests that of the 56,000 new affordable rent units up to 23,000 could be lost.”

    ‘Negative impacts’

    The cap would have the effect of “disproportionately impacting on families and therefore children”, the letter said, because reductions would affect family homes rather than flats.

    The letter said removing child benefit from the overall benefits cap could “substantially reduce the negative impacts”.

    “This would also mean the overall message of the cap would not be lost,” it added.

    Such a move would also reduce the knock-on effect to local authorities and the number of new affordable rent properties lost, the letter said.

    Plans for a maximum limit on the amount of benefits one family can claim were announced at the Conservative conference last October.

    Chancellor George Osborne said the cap would be set at the amount “the average family gets for going out to work”, which is about £26,000 a year.

    The cap would apply to the combined income from benefits including payments such as jobseekers allowance, housing benefit and council tax benefit.

    About 50,000 families were expected to be affected by the cap, planned for 2013, and were likely to lose an average of £93 a week.

  10. The Government is set to abolish minimum wage rates for children working for summer jobs on farms and in the countryside. School age children (under 16) currently receive £2.98 an hour under the Agricultural Wages Board. The Government is planning to abolish the Agricultural Wages Board as part of the Public Bodies Bill currently before Parliament. Ministers claim that farm workers will be protected by the National Minimum Wage but the minimum wage does not apply to children under 16.

    Labour Shadow Environment Secretary Mary Creagh challenged the Farming Minister, Jim Paice on protection for farm workers during an exchange in the House of Commons on Thursday 30th June. She said that the Agricultural Wages Board guarantees farm workers benefits such as bereavement pay and sick pay which is roughly £180 per week for a grade 1 farm worker whereas statutory sick pay is just £81.60 a week. She told the minister that children working on farms who are not covered by the National Minimum Wage will lose their wage protection if the Agricultural Wages Board is abolished.

    Speaking after the exchange in Parliament Mary Creagh said:

    “Many children benefit from summer jobs in rural areas, but we need to make sure that we have fair wages for farm workers, whatever their age. The Government’s reckless decision to abolish the Agricultural Wages Board, in place since 1924, will lead to a race to the bottom for some of our lowest paid workers. It is astonishing that Ministers are unaware that children will have no wage protection from the national minimum wage and have no plan to protect child workers from exploitation.”

  11. I am not sure if this is a scam or not but thought that I would let everyone know 🙂

    I applied for a job as a receptionist at the job centre through The Jobs 4 Network. When I say “applied” I should say that the “advisor” handed me the “vacancy” print-out, ordered me to apply and bawled at me that if he found out that I hadn’t applied they would STOP ALL MY BENEFITS FOR SIX MONTHS. I was shaking like a leaf and almost burst into tears in the job centre but somehow managed to control myself until I was out of the job centre office.

    So, utterly terrified I rushed of to apply for this job. I emailed my CV and quickly received a reply from “Kellie Southwell” saying “Hi, Thank you for your CV application . You will now need to complete the second part of your application by clicking the link below to complete the online application form.”

    The link I was supposed to clicked was for clixtrac.com. When I clicked on the click my computer wouldn’t let me, complaining about a security threat or something .I was now in a panic because I am thinking that the job centre will find out and I will end up starving to death on the streets. Not having a clue about computers II asked for a friend’s help and by turning off the computer security we got passed clixtrac.com but the computer then started to complain about clk.atdmt.com. d-emea.doubleclick.net and ad.doubleclick.net. After many hours of frustration we managed to reach what we thought would be the on-line application form. But no, it was a site called hillarys.co.uk, a blinds company asking if I wanted to run my own business, could I attend a 5 day seminar and oh, I would need £2,500 for the franchise. I haven’t got £25 never mind £2,500.

    I haven’t the slightest clue what this is all about, is this a bogus company who get paid when desperate jobseekers click on the link? And, then why then are the job centre advertising these “vacancies”. Is my computer infected with a virus now? And most importantly will I be sanctioned for six months for failing to apply for a job which doesn’t exist in the first place 😦 PS Sorry, for the long post 🙂

    • Samantha, this is exactly the kind of scam we’re coming across.

      In a tight jobs market, where you’re forced by the DWP to look for employment come what may, people will try to sell work.

      Schemes like this Blinds company’s are common (we had one in Ipswich that ended up threatening this site when it was exposed).

      It’s like the housing renting abuses Jon Snow showed last night on Channel Four.

      People taking advantage

      The scandal is that the Job Centre forced you to look at it.

      Some people (say with redundancy money to spare) could have been pulled in.

    • Actually from a brief look it doesn’t look like a scam but a high pressure selling outfit.

      Some people may find that’s what they want.

      But you really cannot force anybody to take up a career selling stuff for a franchise system that requries capital in the first place.

      Andrew Coates

      July 5, 2011 at 11:13 am

    • Exactly Andrew, this is two scams rolled into one. Firstly, the pay-per-click scam – as Samantha rightly said someone, somewhere will be making a lot of money as I suspect thousands of jobseekers will be clicking on these bogus links.

      Secondly, it is obvious that the “Blinds” outfit is an out-an-out scam preying on desperate people who have been made redundant trying to con them out of their redundancy money – the word “seminar” should be enough to send any right-minded person running for the hills.

      I think that this is worthy of further investigation, maybe pass the details on to the Work Programme Network to do a full exposé. After all, if it wasn’t for Samantha’s clever computer they would have got away with it.

      And finally, it is absolute outrageous that the job centre are colluding in this scam – are the advisers on commission? And to threaten a claimant with a six month benefit sanction for failing to apply for a non-existent job/volunteer to be the victim of a scam is disgusting beyond belief.

      July 5, 2011 at 11:32 am

      • Absolutely Woodbine.

        I should have said “not a straightforward scam” though.

        Given this kind of thing is increasing in society as a whole the idea (Crystal Balls below) that the unemployed will have to go “cold calling” employers looks like a scam itself.

        I would think that companies are also fed up with people telephoning them with some kind of ‘deal’ in mind and would put these unwanted calls in the same bin.

      • We undertook a little experiment on the jobcentre job database!

        http://discuss.workprogramme.org.uk/topic/labour-market-system-job-search-2-week-review

        In 31 areas throughout the UK: 1 in 26 vacancies wanted a CV sent to a free personal email address, Just over 10% requested a phone call for information, 291 employers were recognised as agencies.

        This was done over 2 weeks, the number of vacancies requesting a CV sent to a free personal email address was just 1 in 40 in the first week. (although still too high)

        This highlights concerns with data theft. These job scams are more difficult to spot without analysis for each job advert.

  15. The introduction of the Universal Credit could leave working families trapped in a situation where their income is well below what they need to live, a new report claims.

    The Joseph Rowntree Foundation has released its annual report into what the public think people need to earn to have a socially acceptable standard of living in the UK.

    The report, A minimum income standard for the UK in 2011, is produced through asking members of the public to identify the items a home needs to reach a minimum acceptable standard of living.

    According to the research a single person needs to earn at least £15,000-a-year before tax to afford an acceptable living standard while a couple with a single earner and two children need to bring home at least £31,600.

    A single parent needs to earn £18,200-a-year, up from £12,500 last year owing to the parent receiving less Housing Benefit and tax credits as earnings rise.

    The report says: ‘This experience has important lessons for the design of welfare reform, and particularly for the introduction of the Universal Credit.

    ‘Policy decisions will have crucial implications for the ability of working-age families to make ends meet through modest earnings, and consequently for their work incentives.

    ‘The evidence from 2011 shows that even a seemingly modest change – such as adjusting the rate of childcare support given in the tax credit system – can have a major impact on families’ ability to earn enough to reach an acceptable standard of living.

    ‘The Universal Credit seeks to make it easier for non-working families to earn small amounts through a bit of work, but the risk is that it could do so by trapping more families on incomes that remain well below what they need to live at a minimum acceptable level.’

  16. Door-to-door blitz on benefit cheats: Officials target couples who lie about living apart

    High risk postcodes will be targeted from autumn

    Taskforce hopes to save public purse £100million

    Fraud investigators are launching a door-to-door blitz to catch couples who rake in extra benefits by falsely claiming to live apart.

    The taskforce hopes to save the taxpayer £100million by interviewing every claimant in high-risk postcode areas.

    Their main targets are parents who say they live alone while in fact cohabiting with their partner or husband.

    Officials from the Department from Work and Pensions and Revenue and Customs will check benefit payments, bank accounts, tax credits and any outside earnings. They will also work with councils to check residential addresses.

    Pretending to be a lone parent is a simple way of picking up higher benefits, usually through tax credits.

    The crackdown starts with 5,000 households in Perry Barr and Kingstanding, which make up the B44 postcode of Birmingham.

    Other postcodes around the country with an unusually high number of claimants will be visited from the autumn.

    Lord Freud, minister for welfare reform, said: ‘The new taskforce is our latest weapon in tackling welfare fraud on the front line.

    ‘We are sending a clear warning that if you are fiddling the system, you will be caught. Welfare fraud is a crime and takes money away from the most vulnerable.

    ‘People who are receiving the correct benefits and tax credits have absolutely nothing to fear.

    ‘But if people have deliberately not told us of a change in circumstances, they should do so now, before the team comes knocking at their door.’

    Changes to the way benefits are paid will, by 2013, make it easier to catch fraudsters. Those who come clean about an address change will have to repay the money they owe and face extra punishment, depending on the scale of their offending.

    Those caught by the taskforce face prosecution, fines and possible imprisonment.

    David Gauke, a Tory junior Treasury minister, said: ‘This Government will not tolerate money which is meant for those in genuine need being siphoned off into the pockets of cheats and fraudsters.

    ‘The new taskforce delivers on our commitment to tackle benefit fraud and together with the extra £917million we have reinvested in HMRC sends a very clear message.’

    A spokesman for the DWP said the taskforce costs would be absorbed by the department and not require any extra outlay. The Revenue will also merge its fraud investigations unit with that of the Department for Work and Pensions.

    They aim to reduce the annual welfare fraud and error bill by as much as one quarter – or £1.4billion – by March 2015.

    Any money owed will be deducted directly through PAYE while more than one million claims will be examined to search for official or customer error.

    Since January this year, court cases have identified more than £1million lost by taxpayers to benefit claimants who claimed they were single.

    The ‘living together’ fraud cases include Zena Bailey of North-East London who raked in nearly £83,000 while masquerading as a lone mother.

    She was jailed for a year in February by Snaresbrook Crown Court when police discovered cards addressed to her and her partner at the couple’s home and her partner’s clothes in her wardrobe.

    In May, Suzie Dwyer of Liverpool claimed nearly £103,000 as a single mother but was jailed for 16 months alongside her supposed landlord Paul Campbell. It emerged that Campbell was in fact her partner and father of her three children.

    Karen McCormack of Highgate, North London, was jailed for two years in February after failing to declare she was living with her partner and father of her two children. While claiming benefit, she also neglected to tell the authorities about an £80,000 inheritance she had received.

  17. Call for work scheme probe

    Leading politicians have called for the UK Government to investigate the setting up of its controversial welfare to work initiative in Scotland amid claims staff have been treated illegally.

    The Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO) has lodged a complaint with the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) over two private firms which won the contracts for the scheme.

    It came after Working Links and Ingeus took over the role of finding people jobs – known as employability support – in Scotland on June 1. Both companies signed up to take over relevant staff members from other providers, under employment, or the transfer of undertakings (Protection of Employment) regulations (TUPE).

    Now the SCVO has written to the DWP to complain about the way its former staff members have been treated in the course of the handover.

    In a letter to the department, Donna Mackinnon, employment director of the Scottish charities umbrella group, calls for a review of the process by which 14 SCVO employees were transferred to Working Links, a process she describes as “a catalogue of appalling practice, which in our view is illegal”.

    TUPE protects employees’ terms and conditions when a business is transferred.

    Last night Shadow Scottish Secretary Ann McKechin, MP, backed calls for an investigation.

    Ms Mackinnon’s letter states that of 14 former SCVO staff affected by the transfer, 11 are on gardening leave as Working Links’ sub-contractors are either not ready for them to begin work, or do not have roles for them.

    Many of the concerns relate to sub-contractors, including Argyll and Bute Council which had bid to provide employability services in its own area and the Highlands.

    Ms Mackinnon claimed two former SCVO employees had been told they were being made redundant, while another five Moray-based staff were called to a “briefing” which turned out to be a job interview. “They were then put through an interview for two posts for which they received no advance notice and were not even given a job description.”

    Another three members of staff based in Inverness were called in for a meeting with Argyll and Bute Council earlier this month and told their pay would be cut from September, in one case by 26%, she said.

    Ms Mackinnon told The Herald the way the process had been handled called into question the awarding of the initial contract to Working Links and added: “Under TUPE, staff need to be consulted if their pay or conditions are to be changed, but people have just been turning up to meetings to be told ‘your salary’s going to be cut’.”

    Ms McKechin said: “It is worrying that allegations of this kind have been made by a highly respected organisation such as SCVO. It is also very concerning that highly experienced staff with expertise in getting people into work from difficult backgrounds are potentially being lost. The DWP should investigate this matter urgently.”

    Christina McKelvie, MSP, added: “One of the big worries about the fact the DWP didn’t give these contracts to Scottish companies is that this is exactly what would happen. They haven’t looked at local circumstances.”

    Argyll and Bute Council denied any workers had had their salaries cut, but added: “We have advised those employees who have transferred that we will be entering a period of consultation. No decision has been taken on the reduction of any salaries.”

    Working Links said it was content it and its sub-contractors had followed TUPE rules. A spokeswoman said: “While we cannot discuss individual cases, we can confirm we have met our TUPE obligations and will continue to do so in consultations with our new colleagues who have been transferred over.”

    A DWP spokesman said it would seek resolution of issues relating to TUPE adding: “We will take any failure to comply with the law very seriously.”
