Did you know that Jobcentre Plus have a retention team? The retention team is there to try and smooth out difficulties between employers and employees. You can contact your local Job Centre and ask to speak to someone regarding your difficulties – they will liaise with the two parties to try to resolve any disputes and stop the situation from getting worse. This is of particular interest if you have a disability, whether you have disclosed it to your employer or not. Under the Equality Act 2010 anyone with a disability is entitled to request reasonable adjustments to help them do their job.
