Reply To: Implementing a tribunal decision


Thanks for the quick responses.

My personal opinion is that the tribunal decision is correct and the DWP guidance manual is wrong.

My concern was if I revised our decision (in line with the tribunal’s decision and in the appellant’s favour), I would remove the ability for the DWP to challenge the decision (if they wanted to dig their heals in and not change the guidance until there was caselaw to support the change in guidance).
