    What is expected if you will depend on your claimant commitments. It can include attending work focused interviews and other appointments such as training or employment programmes, which can include job fairs.

    I don't think it's right that your work coach bullies you but it will depend on what you mean exactly by this.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Hi @azbegum255, welcome to the community. Sorry to hear you're struggling.

    As Poppy mentioned above, there are usually certain commitments that you'll have to meet to receive your payments and this might include attending the job fairs. They should be able to adjust some of your commitments around your conditions, but sometimes misunderstandings can happen.

    When you say your work coach is bullying you, how do they normally do this?

    If you feel like your work coach is treating you unfairly, perhaps you could ask to speak to a manager at your job centre to see if they can advise you on what to do next.
