Access to Work claims can be submitted without employer or support worker signature

From 23rd April, Access to Work customers have been able to submit claim forms for reimbursement without an employer or support worker signature and ask their line manager or support worker to provide an email confirming the details of the claim and that they agree to the terms and conditions on that form.
