The DWP can contact any company and ask for them to confirm if you have applied for a vacancy - There is nothing within the Data Protection Act that prevents the company in question from giving a yes/no answer. However, providing the DWP with a copy of the application and/or emails could be a breach of the DPA.

May i suggest that you can not beat the system. Are you recording all job searches and all applications made. They will do almost anything to sanction you


Any opinion I give is from personal experience .

Use other sites such as CV library as well

 

Log in every day and search jobs within a set range of your house. If you do it daily you can add "Jobs added within the last 24 hours" which cuts the list down and avoids repeats.

 

BUT if u find a job on there with the company listed it may pay to approach the company direct as opposed to doing the 1 click thing

I put limited details about the job on UJM/Work Booklet, so if they look at this they have no way of knowing what company/agency the job is with to check it up, I do have confirmation emails with me when I sign on if they want proof of applying for the jobs

 

 

Number of jobs to apply for varies person to person, I was told there is no set number as applying can take time (could be one click, could be an hour for on line application or could be a few hours or more if paper application)

You need to get your Coach to give you - in writing - a specific number of jobs to apply for each week, or else how does anyone know what's 'too little' and 'too much'??

 

Unless they formally instructed you to apply for a job, they cannot obtain feedback. It's in the 'Decision Making & Appeals (DMA): Gaining Customer Feedback from Employers' guidance and quite clear;

 

'Feedback from an employer can only be requested where an advisor has matched a Jobseekers Allowance customer to a vacancy.'

 

Every vacancy I find is always by my own efforts and I've had to correct advisers a few times who thought they had the right to contact all the employers I'd listed. Threat of reporting for Data Protection violation tends to make them very nervous :)

 

If you found the vacancy totally on your own then it's none of their business - but still best to log it and provide some sort of screen print as proof of application as it all goes towards your JS evidence.
