This section has no associated Explanatory Memorandum

4.—(1) The following provision is made in accordance with section 41 of the Act to test the extent to which the imposition of work-related requirements on persons already in paid work is likely to promote their remaining in work, or obtaining or being able to obtain, more work or better-paid work.

(2) Regulation 99 of the Universal Credit Regulations (which provides for the suspension of work search requirements and work availability requirements where the claimant's [F1monthly] earnings from employment or, if the claimant is a member of a couple their combined [F1monthly] earnings from employment, reach a specified amount) is to apply as if paragraph (6) were omitted.

(3) The provision made by paragraph (2) is to apply only in relation to qualifying claimants who have been selected by the Secretary of State in accordance with regulation 5 and notified of that selection in accordance with regulation 6.

(4) The provision made by paragraph (2) ceases to apply to a person who has been selected in accordance with regulation 5 where—

(a)that person ceases to be a qualifying claimant (but see paragraph (5)); or

(b)the Secretary of State determines that that provision should cease to apply because—

(i)the person has moved to live in a different geographical area, or

(ii)the Secretary of State has determined that the testing of particular work-related requirements that have been imposed on that person has concluded.

(5) Where a person has been selected in accordance with regulation 5 and, by reason only of an increase or decrease in their [F2monthly] earnings (or, if they are a member of a couple, the [F2monthly] earnings of the other member) the person is no longer a qualifying claimant, paragraph (2) applies again if the person becomes a qualifying claimant again unless, in the intervening period,—

(a)paragraph (2) has ceased to apply for another reason; or

(b)the person has ceased to be entitled to universal credit for a continuous period of 6 months or more.
