Those seeking employment in Britain can face compulsory placements for temporary work activity or face fines according to “radical” new welfare regulations.
Based on proposals to reform the welfare system, the government is to give the power to Jobcentre Plus advisors to assign four-week mandatory work activity to job seekers, who are believed to need a taste of the “habits and routines” of working life.
Those obliged to do the temporary work will have to do it for up to 30 hours a week while they continue to look for employment.'
