I'm in Situation, I'm attending a Funeral in Cornwall on the 7th to the 8th, I sign on at the Job Centre on the 7th August but get back on the 8th August in the evening, What can I do? I've tried calling them up today but they are closed Sundays, Can anyone help? They have witnessed that i've desperately tried to get work lately as they are known for me getting a 2nd Interview with the same Store last week and another interview at Thorpe Park before that during the month and in reply of getting a final word back from the Store manager, Surely something can be done I cannot miss this Funeral. I dont particulary know what I can do :(

Good luck with the job search.

Ring them tomorrow and let them know, I can't imagine they would have a problem with it.

get a job like the rest of us

I think he would get a job if he could do. We are currently in a recession you know and the job market is shrinking by the day. Try reading his post, he has interviews.

I agree you should give them a call.

If a claimant knows in advance that s/he cannot attend the Jobcentre Plus office at the time s/he is required to do so, s/he should let the office know as soon as possible and agree another time for her/his attendance. S/he needs to show good cause for changing the time, for example, a job interview or caring responsibilities. If s/he does not attend at the notified time and has not agreed to re-arrange it, her/his JSA may be stopped.
141JSA may also be stopped if the claimant attends on the right day but at the wrong time on two subsequent occasions, after being warned of the consequences of late attendance. The claimant should contact the Jobcentre Plus office as soon as possible if s/he fails to attend. S/he has five working days in which to show that s/he had good cause for not attending, for example, caring responsibilities or sickness.

It seems as though any talk of benefits on here is spammed.

I just wondered where he got his knowledge about it from - no hating. I thought he'd be too modest to answer though.

I don't hate benefits either. I'd love to get some of them.

So you would like to lose your job and have to sign on would you?? :roll:

Yeh right!!

I like a good 'debate' too but this one is personal to a couple of million people in the UK (them and their families) so its not funny in the slightest...

No, I'd just rather not have to pay council tax or prescription charges. It was a tongue in cheek comment.

I realise people have to pay these things.

Sorry to hear about the funeral. I have googled for you and found this...

Sanctions...

* Not being available for or actively seeking work, or not signing the Jobseeker's Agreement: if a claimant doesn't declare on the Jobseeker's Agreement that they're available for and actively seeking work, and sign it, then benefit will be suspended until the date that the claimant completes and signs the agreement. Once the agreement has been signed, a Decision Maker will decide how much of the backpay the claimant should get, if any.
* Missing a Restart interview: claim will be terminated unpaid, back benefit entitlement will be lost, and the client will need to make a new claim.
* Voluntarily leaving work, or refusing a notified vacancy: temporary reduction or stoppage of benefit payment, known as a sanction. The sanction may be up to 26 weeks, and the length will be decided by an adjudicator. A notified vacancy is a job vacancy which the claimant has found out about from Job Centre Plus, who keep records of all the jobs their clients request information about.
* Refusing to attend compulsory scheme, or failing to comply with Direction: sanction of two weeks for first 'offence', and four weeks for second and subsequent offences.


It's really only going to apply if you are regularly mucking them around so as long as they know it is a genuine reason not to attend then you should be ok.

I wonder how many of the recently laid off, redundant or unemployed had the same ''everyone on benefits was dole scrounging layabout'' attitude. It can happen to anyone in any career.

I'll say I don't know how these people stay on JSA for so long I got a job within the first 2 weeks of signing on, I guess they just know how to play the system :whistling: - don't hate the system, hate the player or in fact both

you can only claim JSA for a mazimum of 6 months. Then you have to go on to income support.
