Social Security (Flexible New Deal) (No.2) Regulations 2009 come into force

Implementation date: 2 November 2009

The Regulations amend the length of time a benefits sanction can last where a claimant, who has previously been subject to a benefits sanction, has agreed in writing to undertake Flexible New Deal activities, but either fails or refuses to attend, or loses a place on a scheme without good cause. The Regulations can be viewed on the OPSI website.
