Are you claiming JSA or Universal Credit?

Has the requirement been added to your claimant commitment?

Have you explained the problems about the agencies that are being suggested?

JSA regulations

You can only be directed to register with a specific employment agencies via a Jobseeker's Direction (assuming you are claiming JSA) to register with specific employment agencies.

If you claim UC you can me mandated via your CC.

If you are mandated to carry out a specific labour market activity, which is reasonable for your circumstances you will also be directed to provide evidence that you have completed the task.

You know where I am if you need any further help.

There is still much to do.

All the best!

I know and thanks to you all. cheers

With your help! It all came out good again and WE won in the end.
The first 5 sanctions on the work programme were a piece of cake and thrown out by the first DM, within 2 weeks. I did this myself.
The 6th took 5 Years!!! and we won at tribunal in the end with the help from members on here. even after the changeover.

I got tired with the 7th sanction, 5 years after. It changed my life and I had more important things than chase DWP for another £14 possible for another 5 years of JCP money and shit, just for £14 quid. (is was actually a lot more than that.) I lost hope expecting another 5 years of shit and a fight but I did not lose all hope after some members on here tried to help me again!!!
How wonderful.


 What did it cost them? Perhaps a SAR request is needed to find out????



THANKS ALL. bounce AGAIN

Oneman. sunny

Not to belittle your victories Oneman, which are great and I'm very happy for you and ND for persevering against the odds, but for me the bigger point is how absolutely fucking outrageous it is that any complaint should take more than a few weeks to resolve never mind a few years as in your case. It seriously makes my blood boil. Mad

It's absolutely clear that the system is set up precisely to, in the first instance, discourage claimants to complain and then, if they do persist, to make the process as drawn out and painful as possible. But you know, karma's a bitch and what goes around comes around. Some day the authors of this corrupt, punitive system will get their come-uppance. cheers
