Counselling and Probation (C&P)

Case summary

F&R Date: 2021-05-13

The grievor challenged the counselling and probation (C&P) for a conduct deficiency described as failing to report to his place of duty on time. The grievor stated that he believed he was off work that day and had properly completed a leave request form, despite the fact that his Chain of Command was unable to locate the request. The grievor also raised the fact that he immediately reported to work to complete a leave request once he was notified of the situation and was then given permission to take his leave. The grievor maintained that he had made an honest mistake and requested withdrawal of the C&P.

The Initial Authority (IA) noted that the leave authorization was given only after the grievor failed to report to his workstation, resulting in him being absent without leave at the time. The IA found that the remedial measure imposed was reasonable and in accordance with applicable policy.

The Committee noted that the grievor had a history of conduct deficiency, including tardiness and absences, and that he had recently been cited for a conduct deficiency in another incident. 

The Committee considered the factors set forth in Defence Administrative Order and Directive 5019-4, Remedial Measures, and determined that the remedial measure selected was reasonable.

The Committee concluded that the C&P assigned to the grievor was justified and administered in accordance with the applicable directive.

The Committee recommended that the final authority deny the grievance.
