You have a right to be accompanied at jobcentre interviews

You have a right to be accompanied at jobcentre interviews
You have a right to be accompanied at jobcentre interviews, and the golden motto of the KUWG is, "Never attend anywhere official alone."

But the Department for Work & Pensions as currently operating and as it has been operating since at least 2004 is a bully, and like all bullies, likes to minimise your knowledge of your rights so as to deny your options base on those rights.
