  1. Hello. I will try and be as brief as I can as this follows on from a thread I posted in the employment section which has now been resolved so I won’t go in to any details. I resigned and get full pay for the whole of November as well as full pay (Gardening leave) for December. Overall this was the right thing to do for me based on the likely outcome. My full pay went in today and will also do so for December as confirmed by HR. I resigned on medical grounds as my A&D got a lot worse and have been to the GP about this and all disciplinary action against me has been dropped. If DWP
  2. Hello I agreed to take part in a mandatory sector based work academy placement that I didn`t have to agree to but I took the opportunity to agree as it was only for 1 week. The big question is on the 4th and 5 th day I was and still am having some serious personal trouble at home. I sent an email to one of the work programme staff at the centre to let them know that I was having personal trouble and I received an email saying "OK Kevin," in that exact format. I saw my work coach advisor the following week and he never said anything to me but I did tell him I was/am having
  3. Hi all, I'm sure I'll get better advice here than from HMCS online who of course take up to five days to answer an email. A friend wants to sue a builder who damaged her property while working on a neighbour's house. I won't bore you with the whole story but it's been dragging on for nine months. She is very hard up, works and gets Working Tax Credits. I thought she would qualify for a fee remission, but apparently not. The online advice brochure says that you qualify if you receive a number of different benefits including Universal Credit, but there is no mention of WTC.
  4. I saw this thread over on Rightsnet today regarding how the working disabled/sick will fair under Universal Credit, and it looks like the phrase 'very badly' comes to mind. http://www.rightsnet.org.uk/forums/viewthread/4375/ I went and downloaded these new regulations and the CAB's report on them and unless I've got it wrong it seems to indicate that someone claiming the disabled element on UC can only do so If they work below 16 hours/and/or earn less then £99 per week and If you want to work longer hours and earn more you will only be able to do so If you're also claiming DLA/PIP a
  5. just wondering if the everyone on jsa has to create a universal jobmatch account from monday and what will happen if they don't? i apply for loads of positions every week and each time i go to sign on my jobsearch form is always full. if i applied for the same amount of positions without using universal jobmatch would i be sanctioned?
  6. Newspapers and landlord magazines have been full of comments about the Government's intention to reform the Local Housing Allowance system to reduce costs. Some of the proposals are workable and fair and others not. Even London's Lord Mayor has joined the controversy against his fellow Conservatives. I emailed the manage of the local council housing benefits dept. on Friday about the issue that I thought might give me, as a LL, the biggest problem: "There's a lot of talk about the new LHA rules, but the one that concerns me most is expecting single people under 35 to share. I have enoug
  7. Universal credit CCJ passed onto Paragon, 15 years on and I owe more than the CCJ Hi all, I really could do with some advice and hopefully direction on this matter as I am yet another unfortunate who has had interest reinstated by Paragon. Previously Universal Credit. Having read numerous parts of the Consumer credit act 1974 I think I may just e able to stand up to them and hopefully help others reading this site also. Typically I am concerned that I am reading it with a bias eye and what have found will get blown straight out of the water by Paragon. Here is my story I will tr
