Entitlement: WTC entitlement - Qualifying remunerative work: Suspensions from work

The Working Tax Credit (Entitlement and Maximum Rate) Regulations 2002, Reg 7B

A person who is suspended from work while complaints or allegations against him are investigated and was engaged in remunerative work immediately before the suspension began, is treated as being in qualifying remunerative work.

If a person’s work ceases, or their normal hours reduce below the requisite level during the time this regulation applies the 4 Week Run On may apply. It should not be applied for cases where the person ceases to be treated as engaged in remunerative work under the above provision.
