A new deal for welfare : empowering people to work by Great Britain( Book )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The welfare reform Green Paper A new deal for welfare: Empowering people to work was published on 24 January 2006. It marked the third stage of the Government's Welfare Reform programme, building upon the introduction of the New Deals in 1998 and the creation of Jobcentre Plus in 2002. The Green Paper proposals are ambitious and wide-ranging. They provide the foundation upon which we can build towards the aspiration of an 80 per cent employment rate for people of working age. This aspiration reflects the Government's determination to provide the opportunity of work to everyone in our society."--Introduction
Is work good for your health and well-being? by Gordon Waddell( Book )

5 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Increasing employment and supporting people into work are key elements of the Government's public health and welfare reform agendas. This independent review, commissioned by the Department for Work and Pensions, examines scientific evidence on the health benefits of work, focusing on adults of working age and the common health problems that account for two-thirds of sickness absence and long-term incapacity. The study finds that there is a strong evidence base showing that work is generally good for physical and mental health and well-being, taking into account the nature and quality of work and its social context, and that worklessness is associated with poorer physical and mental health. Work can be therapeutic and can reverse the adverse health effects of unemployment, in relation to healthy people of working age, for many disabled people, for most people with common health problems and for social security beneficiaries

An independent review of the Work Capability Assessment by J. M Harrington( Book )

8 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Work Capability Assessment (WCA) was designed to focus on a person's capability rather than their incapacity. It distinguishes between those people who could work; those people who could work at some point with the right support (the Work-related Activity Group); and those people who cannot work (the Support Group). In essence the WCA was designed to be a first positive step towards work for most people. However this Review found that the WCA is not working as well as it should. Interactions with both Jobcentre Plus and Atos are often impersonal, mechanistic and lack clarity; the Jobcentre Plus Decision Makers do not in practice make decisions but instead typically 'rubber stamp' the advice provided through Atos; some conditions are more difficult to assess than others; communication and feedback between the difference agencies and organisations involved is often fragmented. Accordingly the key recommendations include: empowering and investing in Decision Makers; to account for the particular difficulties in assessing mental, intellectual and cognitive impairments by ensuring Atos employ 'champions' of these conditions in each Medical Examination Centre building more empathy into the process; improving transparency by ensuring each report contains a personalised summary of the Atos healthcare professional's recommendations;; and better communication and feedback. Piloting of audio recording of Atos assessments is also suggested. As the first of five annual reviews in the WCA this report also proposes a programme of work for the second review

Working for a healthier tomorrow : Dame Carol Black's review of the health of Britain's working age population : presented to the Secretary of State for Health and the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions by Carol M Black( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Around 175 million working days were lost to illness in 2006. Some 7 per cent of the working population is workless and receiving benefits because of long-term health conditions or disabilities. This represents a significant cost to the economy - in cost of benefits, healthcare, forgone taxes, lost production, sickness absence, informal care - estimated at between £103 and £129 billion. The review's vision for health and work in Britain is based on three principal objectives: prevention of illness and promotion of health and well-being; early intervention for those who develop a health condition; an improvement in the health of those out of work. The review establishes the first baseline for the health of the working population. It then examines the role of the workplace in health and well-being. Work is good for both physical and mental health (Waddell and Burton, 2006, "Is work good for your health and well-being?" TSO, ISBN 9780117036949). Employers, trade unions, employees, safety and health practitioners should all promote the benefits of investment in health and well-being. The review calls of a fundamental shift in the perception of fitness for work, to move away from it being inappropriate to be at work if not 100 per cent fit. Early intervention can prevent short-tem sickness becoming more serious, and pilot trials of a new Fit for Work service are proposed. More health support for workless people on incapacity benefits is recommended. Professional expertise for working age health is needed, and occupational health should be in the mainstream of healthcare provision. To safeguard the future health of the working population, young people should understand the benefits of a life in work. The review closes with proposals for taking the agenda forward

A new system of child maintenance by Great Britain( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This white paper builds on the recommendations made by Sir David Henshaw in his report "Recovering child support: routes to responsibility" (Cm. 6984, ISBN 010168942X). Sir David argued for an approach in which parents would be encouraged and helped to take responsibility for making their own child maintenance arrangements, but with strong and effective state support if this did not happen. The four underlying principles for change are: to help tackle child poverty; to promote parental responsibility; to provide a cost-effective and professional service; to be simple and open. The Government will replace the underperforming Child Support Agency (CSA) with a new organisation, the Child Maintenance and Enforcement Commission (C-MEC). Various changes to payments and the amount of maintenance that parents on benefit can keep before it affects the level of benefit are proposed. The new scheme will include a more streamlined assessment process, requiring only three pieces of information to decide how much a working non-resident parent must pay: gross income (before deductions); the number of qualifying children; whether the non-resident parent has any children living with them (and if so, how many). The scheme will also have tougher enforcement powers, and options being examined include withdrawing passports and driving licences, and collecting maintenance directly from financial institutions. Another proposal is that both parents are registered on birth certificates. C-MEC will be set up in 2008. The Government wants responses to these proposals, by 13 March 2007.

Barriers to employment for offenders and ex-offenders( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This research explores the evidence on the level, pattern and causes of unemployment among people with a criminal record (PwCR) in the UK, with a focus on the recruitment stage of the hiring process and the impact of knowledge of a criminal record on the decision to employ. The Police Act of 1977 introduced ‘Basic Disclosure” which authorised employers, with the consent of the individual, to access information on job applicants’ and employees’ criminal records. A new piece of legislation, the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act, soon to come into force, will alter that ability, and for some PwCR, the Act will allow them to put their criminal record entirely behind them. The causes of unemployment among PwCrs is assumed to be high. However research shows that part of this group – those in prison, and those under probation supervision – exhibit characteristics associated with employment difficulties, such as low qualifications and drug and alcohol abuse. Irrespective of criminal record, this group would be expected to suffer above average levels of unemployment. What impact, then, does the criminal record alone have?
