Description

Universal Credit : How will it impact on your business?

Universal Credit is a new single monthly payment for people who are on a low income or out of work. It brings together a range of current benefits and tax credits.

DWP have changed the rules so that people aren't limited by the hours they can work, or discouraged from taking temporary or short term work. It ends the 16 hour a week rule that may previously have led people to restrict the hours they work to avoid losing their benefits.

Jobcentre Plus work coaches will encourage workers to discuss with their employers how how they can increase their chance of earning more. This could be by improving their skills which may help them to take on more responsibilities. You may find your employees asking for more hours or for help with building heir skills. You can play a role in this - helping your business become more productive.

Health and Disability

New inititiatives are already in place to help bridge the employment gap for people with a long term health conidtion or disability.
