There are many elements that of Poor Laws reflected in today's welfare policy. The largest idea being of separating worthy from unworthy poor. There is also the element of relief being controlled for individuals on a local level. Deterrents are still utilized to make it difficult and there still exists an emphasis on work requirements as much as possible in order to receive benefits.
