Relocation - Reservists 

Case Summary

F&R Date: 2021–04–22

In a grievance submitted in 2019, the grievor alleged that the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) had granted him a “partial move” and relocated his household, goods and effects (HG&E) to Ottawa in 1995, when he accepted a Class “B” Reserve position. Based on this, the grievor argued that he was entitled to a return move upon his retirement, as well as Accommodation Assistance Allowance, Post Living Differential, and other benefits from 1995 to 2019.

The Committee found that there was no evidence that the CAF had ever approved a move of the grievor to Ottawa, nor that the CAF had ever moved the grievor's HG&E to that location at public expense. In fact, the limited documentation available from 24 years earlier suggested that the grievor had likely been considered as a “local hire” for the Class “B” position in Ottawa and that he had located his HG&E to Ottawa on his own. The Committee recommended that the Final Authority (FA) not afford the grievor redress.  

FA Decision Summary

The FA agreed with the Committee's findings and recommendation, finding that the grievor was not entitled to the requested relocation benefits and denying redress.
