Pregnant EU Migrant Denied Benefits In The UK Was Entitled To Payments, European Court Of Justice Rules
Jessy Saint Prix gave up working as a teaching assistant in the final stages of her pregnancy and attempted to claim benefits in the UK.
Gingerbread say the new rules 'focus too heavily on sanctions' in what the charity has described as a 'tick box exercise', rather than providing single parents with tailored support which would enable them 'to get work ready'.
Unemployed lone parents could be forced into mandatory unpaid work placements as part of fresh changes to benefits coming into force from the 28th April 2014.
