Reply To: Tempoary Absence – Prisoner and HDC



your chap left the home in March 2005. You have made decisions that he is entitled through temp absence rules (incarceration) and then (fear of violence if returns) from that date. HOWEVER The absolute maximum period that can be [b:fa69621c50]paid[/b:fa69621c50] is 52 weeks absence. You must stop payment, no payments can be made after march 06 (or once the 52 weeks have extinguished). reg 7 (16) gives the provisions for the temp absence and reg 7 (17) the overall limit.
I hope this is clear for you 😀
