CPAG’s response to the publication of the independent review of jobseeker’s allowance (JSA) sanctions

22 July 2014

Responding to the publication of the independent review of jobseeker’s allowance (JSA) sanctions published today, Alison Garnham, Chief Executive of Child Poverty Action Group, said:

“We welcome this critical report from the independent reviewer which illustrates how shambolic the current sanctions regime has become. When families are neither fully informed of conditions imposed on them when they make a claim for benefit, nor told that their income has been stopped as a result of their ‘failure’ to comply, they enter a truly Kafkaesque world where nothing makes sense."
