IIf a DWP staffer wants to sanction you they'll have to tell you about it. In the meantime, look for work when you can and stop fretting about sanctions. You'll be OK.

 

On that point, I solidly concur - DWP staff have strict guidelines that they should follow and can not go dishing out sanctions on a whim. I'd also recommend going to bed earlier, cutting back on coffee & tea in the evening, and perhaps getting in to the routine of using a computer for just a few hours each day.

 

Oh, and go out and find at least one thing each day that makes you smile - For me, it was the silver tabby that lives a few doors down that came in wanting a fuss made of her.

i know i keep going on about stupid things but i'm kinda worried about what happens when i signed on today

 

 

well the guy i saw looked at my job search diary and i asked if there were any restrictions preventing me from doing a full job search, i said no there isn't and he started telling me details of how to fill out my job search form if an application was made/not made or something, then he wrote on my job search diary no restrictions and i'm worried this means i'm going to get sanctioned :/

then went the meeting was over he said have a good forenight, you may get lucky.

 

 

am i worrying over nothing or because i do most of my job search online as i suffer from anxiety not count as a full job search? i can prove i have applied for all the jobs on my form.

The No Restrictions issue is baloneous....in the sense that you can only reasonably be expected to apply for those jobs for which you are skilled, qualified and competent to do, and for which the barriers to entering a specific job are not excessive.

 

Provided that you apply for a reasonable number of jobs each week (I apply for a reasonable number of jobs each day), which include job goals in the Job Seekers Agreement, anyone in Job Centre Plus who is not a Jobsworth with Obsessive Compulsive Behaviour with the intent of raising a sanction doubt for even a minor indiscretion is unlikely to raise a Sanction Doubt simply because you identify job leads from the internet.

omg i hope not, so it would even record what you were doing on sites like facebook or twitter? :O

Of course now - it would be positively sacreiligious to believe such a thing.

 

When you create an account with UJ, the IP Address of your address is recorded. According to

 

According to the Security Analyst Edward Snowden, currently in Moscow (with the US trying to extradite him), both the NSA and GCHQ (and others) have been involved in collating electronic information concerning individual usage of electronic communications (such as IP Address, Emais sentl, websites, Phone Records visited etc) , Project Prism is simply one example.

 

http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/2013/jun/07/prism-gchq-access-covert-operation

 

Data Matching would therefore allow the IP Address used for Universal Job Match to be correlated with other security information - hopefully, the records pertaining to George Iain Duncan Smith and his be-atch Mr Freud (or vice versa) will be released in due course. We should enjoy reviewing the gay porn sites which they have visited.

I'm assuming it records EVERYTHING you do; when you've logged in, what pages you've looked at, etc...and that's the dangerous thing.

It's manager by Monster USA. I doubt they will refer Terabytes of cookies activity to the DWP.

What's with the whole "George Iain Duncan Smith" thing? I mean, I realise it's his name and all, but is there some particular reason why folks refer to him in a way that he does not refer to himself?

I'm sure they would, but here on CAG we don't wish death on people, not even Mr Duncan Smith.

i never knew they had a football team, it'll also be like the movie scrooge in the scene where he looks into the future and see's everyone dancing singing and having a party because he's died. i bet even David Cameron would find it hard to look upset as i've heard he hates IDS as much as everyone else does :)

We simply indulge and tolerate a pleb of the calibre of George Iain Duncan Smith, a pathetic individual who, after being kicked out of the army in 1981, was unemployed for 6 months (ie sleeping all day, playing video console games, living off Betsy), and later, could only gain kudos by lying on his CV.

 

Hopefully, before the next election, David Cameron will have sidelined the pleb into a less demanding role.

Yeah, the North Koreans qualified for the last World Cup. Also, they were one of the beaten quarter finalists in 1966, a year that is either glorious or infamous depending on which side of Hadrian's Wall you were born. Who knew? But in the last WC, it was supposed that all of their fans were actually Chinese folks paid to cheer for them, although they didn't do much actual cheering. Mainly they looked bored and tortured by vuvuzelas. Can't say I blame them - the football was dire and the vuvuzelas sounded like a paint can full of angry wasps. But I digress.

 

Cameron can never trust IDS. The round-faced one has never forgiven him for becoming PM.

I don't want anyone to think I'm upset about this - folks can call the man whatever they like and I won't object. It's just a little...odd.

Yeah. Look, he won't be invited for supper in my house either, but we have to maintain some basic standards here.
