I was looking at an FOI yesterday about pattern of availability and under UC I'm sure I saw that claimant's were expected to look for work of up to 48 hours a week. I will see if I can find it again as UC rules for joint claims goes live in my JC office next year.

Here it is:

Typically, claimants in All Work Related Requirements (AWRR) conditionality will be required to look for and be available for any work:

regardless of type and salary (as long as it pays at least the National Minimum Wage on a full time basis (generally a minimum of 35 hours that takes them above the Conditionality Earnings Threshold (CET) and up to 48 hours a week for over 18s and 40 hours a week for 16/17 year olds

Most jobs in my sector are advertised as basic 37 hours per week anyway.

Yes, most jobs won't be that high, but I did see a job at a local estate agents near me that added up to 45 per week not including lunch.

Hmmm, you have to be careful with that because they will claim you are not ASE as you are applying for jobs you can't take (because they are over the 24 you have agreed is the limit). Not saying it would stick but there have been a few people in that situation in the past.

If you tell the employer you have a disability when you apply and ask to be considered under the Equality Act 2010, this shouldn't be a problem.

A good place to start a consideration of the reasonableness or otherwise of an adjustment is by looing at the old Disability Discrimination Act 1995, s 18B(1).  That section listed the following relevant factors:

the extent to which taking the step would prevent the effect in relation to which the duty is imposed;
the extent to which it is practicable for him to take the step;
the financial and other costs which would be incurred by him in taking the step and the extent to which taking it would disrupt any of his activities;
the extent of his financial and other resources;
the availability to him of financial or other assistance with respect to taking the step;
the nature of his activities and the size of his undertaking;
where the step would be taken in relation to a private household, the extent to which taking it would—
i) disrupt that household; or
ii)    disturb any person residing there.
