Sean is a trained mechanic and lost his last job just over a year ago when he was ill. His Jobseeker’s Allowance was stopped for 13 weeks for breach of his job search agreement. He applied for six jobs in one week and none the second, instead of three in each week. He says, “You have to apply for jobs when they come up, and because I applied for the last three on Sunday and Monday, they didn’t count as being in the second week, which with the job centre runs from Tuesday to Tuesday, and I’ve been sanctioned.”
