Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
Under what circumstances can advisors from Job Centre Plus remove claimants from New Enterprise Allowance; what guidance is issued to staff?
What does DWP mean by the term 'Meaningfully engaged in running a business?' What sort of evidence would claimants need to provide to prove they are 'meaningfully engaged in running a business?
To be eligible for the weekly allowance claimants must provide proof of working at least 16 hours a week does it have to be at least 16 hours a week?
Can sanctions imposed on New Enterprise Allowance claimants be appealed? If I was to make a complaint how will it be handled and could I get NEA re-instated?
