Job search during unpaid work placement
« on: April 07, 2016,
Does anybody know if a JSA claimant still has to do jobsearch during an unpaid work placement?

We are not talking of a mandatory work experience, but a work placement agreed with the jobcentre.

Thanks.

As I understand it if the placement is more than 30 hours you are exempt from "jobsearch". They usually make sure placement is less than this so you are not exempt though

comply or die

Best thing to do miguel is to look at the JSA guidance on this and also ask your coach. Chances are they will slip in the `yes, you still have to do `some` jobsearch`, but they are trained to say that so it doesn`t answer your question as they could be lying to you. Best thing to do is print off up to date guidance (if you can find any) and show it to them regarding the 30 hour placement. I would argue that your time is restrained so you would like to know. Hopefully someone will have more on this for you soon.
