I don't disbelieve he can't pay?

I think we need to be sympathetic && helpful. Trust - but verify. Help them to guide their employers to claim the financial support that should enable employers to keep employees on.

Lodger claiming that I am harassing?

Dear Kelly,
Legally your lodger, by sharing living space and facilities in your home where you live, is an "excluded occupier" and has no tenancy rights. You have asked her to leave and, having failed to do so, she is now trespassing. Courts take ages, and their findings may muddy the water. You and your child are at risk now.
1. Read the government advice at: https://www.gov.uk/rent-room-in-your-home/your-lodgers-tenancy-type. This will give you confidence to act - peacefully but firmly. Do not confront your lodger further.
2. Call the police, and explain the situation including the risk to your safety. Show them the government advice under 1. They will ask the lodger to move out immediately. The advantage to using the police is that your lodger is less likely to resist or try in future to take revenge against you or your property.

Don't delay - have this person out of your house by this evening. She has a job, so she can find somewhere else to stay.... Read More
