star this property answer text <p>Using the new powers in the Digital Economy Act 2017, Ofcom has introduced, amongst other actions, an Automatic Compensation Scheme that will benefit around 90% of landline and broadband customers in the UK from early 2019. As part of this scheme, if a provider promises a residential customer to start a new service on a particular date, but fails to do so, they will have to pay £5 for each calendar day of delay. For business customers, Ofcom is also introducing new rules to ensure all SMEs are given clearer, more detailed information upfront about what service quality to expect. This includes whether they can claim compensation when problems occur.</p><p> </p><p>At present, if the charitable organisation has a customer relationship with Virgin Media, the complaint for failing to provide telecommunication services can be pursued with Virgin Media. If Virgin Media are unable to resolve the situation within eight weeks, or where the complaint reaches deadlock, the case can be referred for alternative dispute resolution (ADR) to the Communications &amp; Internet Services Adjudication Scheme (CISAS), providing it meets the scheme’s eligibility criteria. Further details about their service can be viewed at: https://www.cedr.com/consumer/cisas.</p>

As a percentage, such absences equated to 10.7% of all Working Days Lost due to sickness absence. However, as the Department continues to pay salaries during sickness absence there is no direct financial cost.</p><p> </p><p>Our approach to absence is fair but robust with the emphasis on health promotion and absence prevention. The Department has a range of support from mental health toolkits, stress reduction plans plus tailored support for people who do go off sick or need support through our Employee Assistance Programme which includes counselling.</p><p> </p><p>The Department has 965 Mental Health First Aiders, who provide acute, short-term and structured support to individuals, provide reassurance and signpost colleagues to both DWP and external sources of support as appropriate. Mental Health First Aiders are also provided with continuous professional development and support for their own mental wellbeing.</p>
