It seems Under Universal Cock people will be sanctioned for taking a break in this country or abroad if they dont jobsearch will away which many wont be able to do or dont want to do on holiday.

So even working people are now being penalised for having a break. A woman reports to come back from her holiday to find out she was fined.

Has anyone any experience? It seems they want you to work work work all the time what about your family why should they suffer.

I knew you could have JSA suspended for holidays abroad (that's been the case for years), but UK for up to two weeks with prior agreement always used to be OK.

UC rolls up more than just JSA though, and there weren't holiday restrictions on others, were there?
