People receiving income support say that navigating the government's Mutual Obligation requirements can be frustrating and stressful. There is also a long-held concern that these requirements are unfair and that they do not help people get suitable, secure paid work.
Join us at an interactive webinar with ACOSS’s Senior Policy Advisor Simone Casey who will talk about current requirements, with a Q&A session facilitated by ACOSS Community Organiser and Engagement Officer, Michelle Shackleton. There will be opportunities to share your experiences with current job search requirements, both in an out of lockdown, and tell us how payment suspensions have impacted you, which will inform an upcoming ACOSS report about the jobactive system.
We'll outline next steps in our advocacy for fairer employment services policy and we hope it will be the start of an ongoing community conversation about employment services into the future.
