  1. Just a question, does anyone know if any company that conducts pre-interviews by webcam or skype before offering a formal interview? I have never heard of this before.
  2. 1) My 'Actions for getting employment" doesn't stipulate a number of jobs to apply for per week (which is odd, when I claimed before I had to apply for 2). Obviously I don't want to display every single job I apply for (which would risk creating a baseline figure), but what is the minimum number that an Advisor needs to see in order to sanction me (for insufficient applications)? 2) They also included 'log into my UJM account daily' - I have NOT ticked the box that allows the DWP to view the jobs I've applied for, BUT can they still see how often I've logged in? Ta
  3. Please can someone explain the purpose of group interviews with more than one candidate - does this mean they're looking for more than one person?
  4. I think i've found the answer (as usual jobcentre didn't follow proper protocol) but to help others i'll post some links. https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/473426/admu4.pdf Page 4 seems to say that i am exempt from any work related requirements due to being a carer. On page 9 claimants who must attend WFI but are not subject to WRA are dealt with separately.

  5. Hi, my advisor says I can not have telephone interviews anymore, which has really distressed me. I can not make physical appointments at all. I find it hard enough to even make it to my doctors (the only time I do out, with someone with me) Maybe 3 times a year or less. So I was just asking for help if this is true or not? Because If I can't make appointments.... then I will lose my benefits? Thank you.
  6. Hello, Thanks for adding me! My question is (and I have tried researching here and others) before asking, so can anybody please clarify, when a RTW has to be completed by, basically my wife has been back at 4 days and still has not been approached to have one. Is there a time limit for instance, that if her employer has not completed by, then it becomes null and void and the 2 weeks sickness cannot be added to her records. (I only ask as this is "hearsay" at the moment) Regards, Dave
  7. This post may help to clarify the legal status of claimants who wish to, or choose to, record their interviews at Jobcentres or other locations where their concerns and personal circumstances are being discussed and may affect them personally. Jasta11, posted on another thread a FOI Response dated Sept 2012 that included the following paragraph: Under the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA), Section 36, there is an exemption which states that:- “personal data; are exempt from the Data Protection Principles and the provisions of Part II (individuals’ rights) and Part III (notificat
  8. Hi , I had an interview last week [ did`t get the job] but i had to go by taxi , can i claim full or part of my expenses back ?. NB Sorry i should of made it clear that i am claiming JSA & if i could claim the money back from the JC when i next sign on.
  9. All facts and no conjecture or opinion from me ,,the company I work for have recently restructured and openings have become available within other departments which I have applied for, the latest of which I was informed by 3 colleagues (1 management) who was `going ` to be successful,, and this was duly the case (despite the applicant being 45 minutes late for the interview, and clearly not the best person for the role).This is probably starting to sound like sour grapes but hand on heart isn't, now ive been informed that my manager and his immediate superior asked for 2 people not to get this
  10. It's quite a long story, bare with me. In 2009, I was interviewed for a position with a company which is a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee. I did not get the job, however, the employer was so impressed with my work that when I offered to volunteer I was welcomed with open arms and then they were so impressed with my work that they decided to pay me on a freelance basis and I was offered 2 hours per week for a term. I was then given a different full time job with a separate company and had to turn down those 2 hours - which I did in very good time before I was d
  11. I have been selected for an interview on the 23 September 2010, the company cancelled this for another date which I was not able to attend. The company told me it would get back to me with another to fit in all the managers. How long do I have to wait for them to get back to me? They have actually finished all interviews as I saw the dates, and would be implementing someone soon, do I have any rights, such as legitimate expectation?? or any rights within employment rights and The HRA 1998.
