R (on the application of Reilly and another) v Secretary of State for Work and Pensions [2013] EWCA Civ 66 CA

Reports relating to this case:

  • Government's unpaid jobseeker schemes unlawful, but not human rights breach

    Date:
    12 February 2013

    The Court of Appeal has endorsed the thinking behind government schemes in which individuals are given unpaid placements as a condition of continuing to receive jobseeker's allowance, but found that two schemes were unlawful because the legislation under which they were introduced did not comply with the Jobseekers Act 1995.
