New UT decision which finds that -

the notion of good reason does not allow a person who was not aware of a letter of notification to be made subject to a sanction

Judge Jacobs also notes - without deciding the issue - that -

it is inherent in the nature of a notification that can lead to a sanction for failure to comply that it does not take effect unless and until it is received.

I like that UT decision very much, however, will UC or DWP not use the excuse that they used the journal to notify ?
