If you look at page 34 of the "Understanding ESA" guide in the members section, you will find

"Work-focused interviews
Claimants in the work-related activity group are subject to a series of five further
work-focused interviews after their initial work-focused interview in the assessment
phase."

I believe that at the end of the mandatory interviews, further attendance is voluntary. In the case of my relative, he was invited to continue - the adviser made it quite clear that he didn't have to.

Hi I have just finished wfi sessions 6mths after medical 9mths after esa claim, no pressure to do anything, IF you find a job under 15K ( laugh) while waiting for your atos results, you can get in touch with your session advisor and they will try to get you the 40£ a week( for 1 year) back to work bonus yippee! other than that they are now redundant! you have fulfilled you side of the deal! sit back and await atos!
