ATOS Was Fined £30 Million For Errors In WCA Delivery

Same Difference

Many thanks Benefits And Work.

In an exclusive report, The Londoner has been told that government contractor Atos was fined £30 million for errors in its delivery of the work capability assessments.

It was announced at the time that Atos had made a “substantial financial settlement” to the DWP, for “significant quality failures” in its reports on people’s ability to work.

Until now details of the fine have been kept hush-hush to avoid embarrassing the company, which is leaving the contract in February 2015.

When asked, the DWP would only respond:

“They are paying us a financial settlement but we can’t disclose the amount for commercial reasons”.

When Atos was asked the same question: “It’s all legally bound up, I can’t comment,” was the reply from its company spokesperson.
