  1. Thanks for the information.
  2. Thanks for the info, do you know the answer to my second question about how long the arrears period is?
  3. How long is the arrears period for payment? Do you get the first payment right at the first four-week mark, or is it delayed?
  4. Is there a run-on payment of housing benefit after signing off due to obtaining work? How does that work if you start your job a week or so after the last regular payment?
  5. Thanks for the information. I think I'll stick with the ones which don't require it until the interview stage.
  6. Steampowered: I did try to contact them, but only got an autoresponse with the application attached. I'm thinking it's not worth the hassle and concern for the kind of job on offer. I'm only trying to find out if there are any rules about what they can and can't require at the application stage. Does anybody here know? Brigadier: As I have repeatedly said, I have no problem whatsoever with them confirming my eligibility to work in the UK. What I have a problem with is them demanding all these very personal documents at the outset. Especially since the application itself asks if one
  7. Okay, but that still doesn't address the question of why all these personal documents are required so early in the application process, especially when other jobs dealing even more directly with minors or sensitive information or whatnot have not asked for them at this stage.
  8. I guess they'll have to do with one of them, then. Sorry, I don't see where I've said anything about my attitude to working with minors, or how it applies in this case. Could you explain what you mean by that? I've got no problem in principle with getting an ECRB either, I just don't see why it would be necessary for a janitorial position in a college.
  9. Enhanced CRB for cleaning toilets and floors on a college campus? Do they really expect people applying for a minimum-wage janitor job to provide their own disclosure? I suppose that's one way to cut down on the number of people applying. In any case, the job description and application don't say anything about that, and they don't seem inclined to answer requests for further information, so I don't know if that will be a requirement in the end. What I'm asking about is the things they definitely are asking for. For the many, many jobs I've applied for over the past couple of
  10. Why would I need an enhanced disclosure for a janitorial job? I'm not mad keen on applying for this job anyway, since when I wrote to the given email address requesting more information, all I got was the same autoresponse with the application again -- no job description, no answers to my questions regarding the position. It's not worth it for such a low-rent position. What I still want to know is if it's truly kosher for them to be requiring all these extremely personal documents at the application stage.
  11. As I said, I am willing to bring copies of these things to an interview to provide such a demonstration. To ask for them at the application stage is a recipe for data protection disaster IMO. Especially since the only thing with my name on it that could pass as a "utility bill" would be a bank statement.
  12. Well, quite. I certainly don't intend to, especially for a low-rent job like this. I was just wondering if there is any kind of law against requiring such things at this stage, and who to report them to if there is.
  13. I am applying for work, and one application (for a janitorial cleaning type position) has asked for copies of the following documents to be sent along with the application. It seems to me that these are things which can be requested at the interview stage, but is it legal for the employer to require them at the application stage? It seems sketchy to me, and I'm reluctant to do so for various reasons, including the potential for identity theft if the documents are misplaced or misused. If it is not legal, is there a body or organization I should report them to? "Please include copies o
