    Just wanted to add to this to say that, crazy as it sounds, you must keep telling the jcp you are looking for work, applying for jobs etc, just as before, or they can sanction you.

    Just because you've got a job doesn't mean you aren't a lazy jobshy feckless scrounger who needs to be forced to find work!

    1927 Funnier than he thinks he is.

    Wait till you've started and they decide to keep you. Im not saying they will take an instant dislike to you but it will save them time.

    Yes. OU has had a shit ride of this including them badgering him despite already having a new year start date.

    Sign off by phone on a week on Monday OU. Send in the paperwork if you are asked to.
    Sign on this Tuesday as normal and tell them nowt. Smile and produce 'evidence' of you job search and thank fuck you are almost out of that toxic, punitive system.

    This. Don't forget to ask. Try and make out you need to use the train as well... They'll give you a rail and bus pass valued at about £150 quid. Nobody says you can't sell it for £80 if you need some quick spends/night out/drugs/whatever.
