Tribunal isn't Worth the paper it's written on?
I am disabled I was deemed fit for work by some bright spark at an esa assessment nearly a year ago I had my tribunal two weeks ago and won which I thought was great at first I contacted esa today to ask about my claim to be told by a very rude and abrupt lady that the tribunal isn't. Worth the paper it's written on tribunal is not legal binding and they can only ask the job center to take consideration to what they say so being awarded esa and to back date it nearly a year means nothing I was told that nothing will change I will stay on universal credit I won't go back on esa even thoe the tribunal said I was awarded esa and its up to the job centre. To decide if they will give me any back pay since being on universal credit it's put me in alot of debt a d severe depression I've waited nearly a year won the tribunal for nothing?
