    In my previous job as a manager, I had the DWP contact me to confirm the reason that the person had given for leaving our employment and ending up unemployed.

    The reason they had given to the DWP was completely inaccurate, so I did put the record straight.

    How  often the DWP do follow up like that, I have no idea.

    All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.

    Oh well if they check all jobs left within the past however far back they go and a permanent job you went to didn't work out although you didn't get sacked then if it's more hours and/or nearer then one could use that as a good excuse then
