Sanctions: Know Your Rights

Post by Non Deficere on Thu Feb 22, 2018 6:20 pm

Helpful booklet:

Published October 2017

Four out of five universal credit sanction appeals are successful

“for universal credit, both the total number of decisions and the number of sanctions being applied have risen in the past quarter - to 48,000 and 16,000 respectively - so that in November 2017 the percentage of claimants with a drop in payment due to a sanction was 4.7 per cent;”

I reckon the money they save on people not bothering to appeal is used to pay the court fees for those that do appeal.

If every JCP office had an in house welfare advisor and resolved the issues at a local level before even considering Sanctions it would benefit both the claimant and the JCP.

There needs to be one successful claim for damages after someone has won an appeal against a Sanction.

Then hopefully a landslide.

Once people realise they could be compensated, more people would come out the woodwork rather just walk away and accept them at face value.

If you do the math in part those that do not appeal are paying the court fees for those that do.

Funny old world innit.
