  • Advice regarding interviews during pandemic

    Hello the DWP is threatening vulnerable unemployed people if they do not attend job seekers interviews. What is your advice?

      Hi Matthew, thanks for posting.  I have seen this on the dwp website: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/coronavirus-support-for-employees-benefit-claimants-and-businesses and it looks as though people on job seekers’ allowance who need to stay at home will be supported:

      • claimants who are staying at home as a result of coronavirus will have their mandatory work search and work availability requirements removed to account for a period of sickness

      Is this different to your own experience?
