Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

It has been brought to my attention that there is guidance given to PIP assessment provider's, IAS and Capita, by DWP around expected standard to be met for Assessors returning to work post maternity leave. It is expected PIP Assessors are expected to go through the same stages of being eligible to be carry out assessments as a new joiner in this role (achieving 5 A1 reports).

I would like to know what guidelines has been specified by the DWP in this regard.

Yours faithfully,

Siddhartha Dasgupta
