Upper Tribunal Administrative Appeals Chamber decision by Judge Mitchell on 3 December 2017.

Read the full decision in CUC/1653/2016.

Judicial Summary

In most cases, a failure to comply with a Universal Credit “work-related requirement” is sanctionable if done for “no good reason”. Does this mean the same as having ‘good cause’ for doing or not doing something? Does it mean the same as ‘without good reason’? Answer to both questions: yes.
