I hope you can help me.
I signed on for the first time a few days ago.
I should have really signed on, a long time, due to not having enough regular work,
but i remember how the advisors at the job centre,
take pride in intimidation and decided that i would rather be broke than have to deal with their insultive mannerisms.
i arrive for my 1st meeting with Advisor 1.
She looked like she was very board to see me, the feeling was mutual.
After getting me to sign what i had agreed in my online application form,
she gave me no copy,
she walked me over to the 2nd Advisor.
She was colder than the first and didn't even speak to me, she just kept on typing.
when i asked what she was doing, she said delating templates.
If i looked at the screen for too long then, she would switch the screen, to numbers, lots of different numbers.
When i asked what was happening,
she said that she had been having problems with the computer.
But only when i was looking at the screen.
after about 15 mins, she gave me my claimant commitment.
as soon as i started to read it, amazingly, after 15 mins of only talking when i spoke to her she started to talk to me…
.I WILL USE JOBSITES AND EMPLOYERS WEBSITES
…..I WILL LOG ON TO UNIVERAL JOBMATCH…
..I WILL RESPOND PROMTLY TO CONTACTS/EMPLOYERS AND JOBSITES
, after the 5th, I WILL, I asked if this was compulsory
…remember i was trying to read the claimant commitment, she said it was a requirement for JSA.
All of this took over 40mins.
I obviously knew that they at the job centre would take advantage of my unemployed status
but i wasn't prepared for what actually really happened.
As i said, the 2nd advisor only spoke to respond to my questions and then, the I WILL section, that she fired at me,
whilst i was trying to read the so called agreement.
A few days later i decided to read the so called commitment, only to find that i had agreed to,
Available for all types of work
Travel 90mins each way to work
Available any time any day for min 40hrs Hrs
The only thing i agreed to was all the I WILL section, because of the false info she gave me.
Fact is i didn't agree simply because she didn't ask me.
What am i gonna do?
