Employment on trial?

Post by Jara on Mon Nov 06, 2017 9:54 pm

Hey everyone!

Is employment on trial still a scheme? How does one person "activate" this scheme if they are thinking of leaving their job?

Cheers!

Employment on Trial
Employment on Trial allows you to leave a job and start claiming Jobseeker’s Allowance again without this affecting your benefit (unless you’re sacked or leave because of misconduct).

You must have worked more than 16 hours a week for between 4 and 12 weeks before leaving the job.

The WC should identify this and a form is completed when a new JSA claim is make.

Thanks! On Thursday it will be four weeks and one day since the job started. I hope I can get the scheme to work!
