Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
Universal Credit and JSA related.
I have a problem understanding what "35 hours Jobsearch" is?
Who decides, the claimant or work coach?
Is there any guides available on how to complete this requirement?
This concept is new and was never a requirement. Why?
I note jobcentreplus work coaches when I've asked them don't seem to be able to give any sensible answers!
If claimants are being sanctioned because a work coach thinks they haven't done 35 hours a week jobsearch and nobody knows how to define 35 hours jobsearch isn't this unfair and fraud?
