Reply To: The end of IS/JSA(IB), termination and adverse inference.


I’ve been having exactly the same debate with Andy Illingworth (sorry Andy) about the correct procedures to be followed in these cases (see his flow chart on “end of IS” in the Library section). Regrettably you won’t be able to read it because we’ve been PM’ing one another! You are absolutely correct in what you say but if you use Northgate it is not easy to do. Their view of adverse inferences is for the user to input on to the system bogus income of, say, £1000 per week so that they don’t qualify!! I have asked that the STATS_NQ functionality is extended to cover adverse inferences.
