Class B reserve service

Case summary

F&R Date: 2021-01-08

The grievor argued that he was unfairly selected to fill one of two temporary duty tasking as an instructor during the summer reserve-training period assigned to his unit. It was his belief that two other qualified unit members should have been selected instead of him, as per their terms of reference.

The Commander of the Naval Reserve, acting as the Initial Authority (IA), denied the grievor redress finding that he had been treated in accordance with the appropriate polices and regulations. The IA noted that the decision about who to send on a tasking is ultimately a command decision and that the decision to select the grievor was both reasonable and logical, taken in part to prevent the recruiting functions of the unit from being shut down for the summer timeframe. The IA also referenced the grievor's Personal Development Report as including an “other duties” clause that further solidified the legitimacy of the decision to select the grievor.

The Committee concluded that the grievor had been treated in accordance with the applicable policies and regulations. The Committee found that the decision by the chain of command to select the grievor for the tasking was logical, reasonable and legitimate. The Committee recommended the grievor be denied redress.
