I am sorry to here of the struggle your wife is having and the stress the situation must be causing.

It is true that there are risks the employer takes on with this program but I am surprised that in a case where the business has stopped trading, the employer does not think the risks are manageable.

I can only recommend that if there is some way to have an Accountant walk them through the moving parts, it may move them some way towards your position.

If you can steer the conversation around to their values and what they stand for in the care of their staff and away from the realm of “I’m right, you’re wrong”, that might also help.

Presumably, there is Jobseeker in the meantime assuming your wife passes the combined income test?

Good luck.
