Felt pressured by the DWP to take any job?
'Way to work'
If you are applying for Universal Credit (UC), you willl now have four weeks, rather than three months, to search for a job in your chosen field. If you can not find a job within four weeks, you may be pressured to take any job, or the face consequences, for example, you may receive a benefit sanction.
This rule change may be unlawful. We are working with the charity Public Law Project.
