Workfare And WCA ‘Quotas’ Constitute FRAUD

March 28, 2013

The idea of an ‘assessment’ is to be assessed. Someone actually looks at one’s case and decides it on an individual basis.

There is, on the other hand, clear evidence of suspension of welfare benefits for Workfare, and rejection of ESA claims during the Work Capability Assessment, based not upon individual assessments but on quotas.

If a member of staff at the Job Centre is being expected to sanction X number of claimants a week, then this makes a complete mockery of the whole concept of individual assessment. If it’s a Friday afternoon and he’s down to his last case for the week and he needs one more sanction to fulfill his quota of sanctions for the week….then the case has already been pre-decided before the claimant even entered the Job Centre !

Similarly, if an assessor deciding Work Capability Assessments ( the clue to what should be happening is in the name ) is being forced to go by quotas, then one has the exact same effect. Someone ends up NOT actually being ‘assessed’ but automatically denied a claim due to quotas having to be met.

This is fraud.

There are no two ways about it.  Quotas and assessments do not go together.  You either have one or you have the other. It is logically impossible to assert that a true and genuine individual assessment has occured if the outcome has already been determined by the requirement that an assessor has to meet a specific quota.
