Problem

Evasion of work

Other Names:
Rejection of job opportunities by the unemployed
Nature:
In contrast to avoidance of work, which occurs within acceptable patterns of behaviour and therefore cannot normally be questioned, evasion of work usually involves deliberate and often illegal actions. It can include presenting false evidence enabling illness to be feigned, new job offers to be rejected, or the impression created that work has been done. In the latter case it may be closely associated with criminal negligence.
