Jobseeker's Allowance regulations treat all jobs classed as employed earners’ employment, including those based on 100 per cent commission, in the same way.
An employment officer, for example, may offer someone who has the relevant sales experience and looking for this type of work, a job based on 100 per cent. commission.
Where the offer of the job is refused it will be referred to an independent decision maker who will determine whether the jobseeker can demonstrate “good cause” for their decision. Each case is judged on its individual circumstances, taking all available evidence into account in reaching the decision.
Where the decision maker determines the jobseeker has not demonstrated good cause, they may lose entitlement to benefit for between one and 26 weeks.
