Employer Changes Job, DWP Sanctions Employee For Refusing Job

October 1, 2014

Mike Sivier carries the story of his friend who applied for a job in a hotel kitchen in Wales.

The job was offered to a younger applicant because this meant paying lower wages. But the younger applicant soon proved unsuitable. So Sivier’s friend was offered the job, working 22 hours per week. So far so good.

But then, before he started,  he was told that the job is now for 40 hours a week. The man can’t work those hours, for personal reasons. So he had to refuse the job.

The hotel contacted the Job Centre, who told the man he may be sanctioned for refusing an offer of work.

It looks like employers are refusing benefit claimants. It looks like employers are helping the DWP keep benefit claimants out of work.

If this carries on, dear readers, how will benefit claimants ever get paid jobs?

Have you had a imilar experience? Please let us know.
