Hi , i worked part time 16 hrs in a care home as a maintenance man for 9 months up until june this year i worked in the dementia unit , the job was quite stressful and upsetting at times and was made worse by a recently promoted carer/manager anyway we didn't get on and we had argument and she tried to give me a written warning about my attitude , so i walked out , the other managers were very understanding and wanted me to return and sort out the problem but i just couldn't deal with it so i resigned went to see my doctor and I've been on the sick with depression/stress since . i have recently got a questionnaire fit for work thingy and my doctor tells me they will probably say i'm fit to work which is ok because i'm ready to start work , my question is will i be able to claim jsa or whatever it is when i get signed off the sick , i will tell the job centre i left the job because it was making me ill . thanks in advance.

You can't claim JSA if you're signed off sick.

I think your asking when you no longer declare yourself sick can you claim JSA, then I cannot see no reason why not ,although as you already have mentioned they will query why you left your last job and if not satisfied they could punish you.

So, you left your last job because of job-related illness which was certified by a doctor and claimed ESA for a time. You are now fit for work again and so wish to transfer to JSA while you look for a new job. That should be fine under the circumstances.
