  1. Mandatory Work Activity
  2.  
  3. "...will not...
  4.  
  5. conflict with any restriction, agreed in the Jobseeker’s Agreement,
  6. on the type of work the customer can undertake for reasons of
  7. health, conscience etc"

  10. Notes:
  11. To make use of the above, a Jobcentre 'customer', needs ensure that their Jobseekers Agreement, or a Letter to a Welfare to Work Provider, contains something along the lines of:
  12.  
  13. as a matter of personal conscience I do not wish to undertake mandatory work activity (MWA) when such work would contribute to the profits of a company or to undertake such MWA in a profit making company, I will consider undertaking MWA in a not for profit voluntary organisation when such is voluntary.
  14.

  19. Sanctions:
  20.  
  21. Refusal on grounds of religion or conscience
  22.  
  23. An employer sometimes tries to impose terms or conditions of employment which
  24.  
  25. would have restricted a claimant's personal freedom or conflicted with a claimant's
  26.  
  27. genuinely held beliefs. If a claimant refused to comply with such conditions, this will
  28.  
  29. not be misconduct. The principles explained in DMG 34480 - 34483 should be
  30.  
  31. followed. If the claimant would have had good cause for refusing the employment,
  32.  
  33. the refusal to comply with such conditions is not misconduct.
