Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
One of the prime tenets of ESA decision making is that ALL relevant information is considered. If an experienced (repeat experienced) Decision Maker fails to consider a very obvious piece of information,
1) would it be regarded as a disciplinary matter?
2) what range of disciplinary actions are available for DWP management to take dependent ultimately on the precise circumstances?
3) Given such a high proportion of TS appeals overturn the DWP ESA decision, are these reversals collated by Decision Maker and usedas an aid to individual performance management?
