LM v Secretary of State for Work and Pensions (ESA): [2016] UKUT 360 (AAC)

Upper Tribunal Administrative Appeals Chamber decision by Judge Wright on 28 July 2016.

Read the full decision in CE/4587/2014.

Judicial Summary

In appeal on whether shown good cause within five days for failing to undertake work-related activity required, an issue can arise as to whether the requirement was reasonable. It is then for the First-tier Tribunal to decide if it was reasonable. If it was not reasonable then no requirement was lawfully made and so good cause does not arise and does not need to be shown.
