'Fraudulent' universal jobmatch site exploiting unemployed - MP

Thu, 06/03/2014 - 13:43 -- nick

The government's flagship universal jobmatch site has been accused of exploiting and failing unemployed people by a respected MP.

Those on Jobseeker's Allowance are forced to sign up and use the site, which carries information on jobs, as a condition of receiving the benefit.

But an investigation by Frank Field, the veteran Labour MP, has shown that more than half of all the jobs advertised on it do not meet its conditions or the law.
