# 2017-037 - Annual Leave, Leave Entitlement, Maternal/Parental Leave (Mat/Par lve)
Annual Leave, Leave Entitlement, Maternal/Parental Leave (Mat/Par lve)
F&R Date: 2017–08–24
The grievor complained that her annual leave entitlement was incorrectly calculated following her return to work from unpaid leave without pay service <LWOP>.
The Initial Authority (IA), the Director General Compensation and Benefits, found that her leave entitlement was calculated correctly in accordance with policy and denied redress.
The Committee noted that the Queen's Regulations and Orders for the Canadian Forces, art 16.14(4), provided the annual leave entitlements for Canadian Armed Forces members and that the Canadian Forces Leave Policy Manual <CFLPM> was intended to elaborate on the regulation. However, as the IA acknowledged in his decision letter, the CFLPM was not worded as clearly as it could or should be and thus created some confusion regarding how to re-calculate leave entitlement following a period of LWOP.
The Committee found that the grievor's leave entitlement was correct in accordance with the regulation and that the CFLPM required amending to correctly reflect the regulation. The Committee recommended that the grievance be denied.
