Sanctioned For Not Looking For Job- While Waiting To Start One, At The DWP

December 17, 2015

A MAN on benefits was sanctioned by Jobcentre staff for not looking for work while he was waiting to start a new job – at the Department for Work and Pensions.

A farcical loophole allows the DWP to sanction claimants for not jobhunting in the period between being offered work and starting in their new post.

Glasgow Central MP Alison Thewliss has a constituent who lost their benefits while waiting for their DWP job.

More on the story you could not make up is here, readers.
