Work Test Whistleblower: Fitness For Work: The Medical Aspects

A major source of confusion with the WCA is whether it is an attempt to
gauge readiness for employment or a measure of a person's disability.
Outwardly it purports to be the former, but scratch the surface and
underneath you'll find a plain old eligibility test for social security
benefits, based on the level of disability. And having actually carried out hundreds of WCAs myself, I don't really buy the "looking at what you can
do, not what you can't do" mantra either. It's obvious WCAs actually
focus on what a person struggles with, hence the scoring system that
awards points for functional problems, not their absence.
