Hi all,

 

I've been offered a job and a (private) employment screening company have asked me to explain gaps in my employment history the last couple of months (Presumably to check I haven't been in Syria or wherever during that time).

 

On their website they boast the ability to tally candidates JSA records with jobless periods, to see whether they match.

 

I have stated I was jobless the last couple of months, and submitted the form, but dumbly forgot a period of nearly a month I was out of work (and claiming) in May.

 

However, does anyone know whether the DWP would need my consent before disclosing any previous benefit claims falling in this current financial year?

 

Thanks,

 

 

Jim.

depends on the job. I doubt theyd be allowed to access your JSA history, unless its a government or specialist security position.


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

The company will need a form completing for you go to give your permission for the DWP to disclose any information and then it will be sent directly to your local Benefit Delivery Centre to complete. As this is not a payment critical form it is highly likely that the form will not be classed as high priority and will be dealt with in strict date receipt order.
