Transfer to Universal Credit may impact your care staff

Many people, especially staff on lower payscales or zero hour contracts, may be worried about the upcoming transfer to Universal Credit and could have questions about how this may impact upon any benefits they currently receive.

To help managers support their colleagues affected by these changes we are running a fully funded study day for HR staff about how Universal Credit affects care staff on 26th April 2018.

What is Universal Credit?

Universal Credit is replacing a range of means-tested benefits paid to working-age people and replaces benefits such as working tax credit, child tax credit and housing benefit for lower-paid workers.

It is not just for people who are out of work or with ill-health. Changes in hours or rates of pay from one month to the next will almost immediately affect your employee’s Universal Credit.

It is already in place for new claims across half of Hertfordshire and will be in place for the rest of the county by the end of 2018.

Join us on 26th April to learn more. Please use the link below to book.
