Initial counselling (IC), Operation HONOUR, Remedial measures
F&R Date: 2021-09-06
The grievor argued that the initial counselling (IC) she received for a conduct deficiency was unfairly administered. She stated that she was promised, by a superior officer, that if she completed the actions required to overcome the deficiency, the remedial measure would not go on her permanent record. The grievor also disputed the facts of the IC.
The Initial Authority rejected the grievance based on the fact the grievor submitted it outside of the time limits established in article 7.06 of the Queen's Regulations and Orders for the Canadian Forces.
The Committee found that the IC was not administered in accordance with Defence Administrative Orders and Directives 5019-4, Remedial Measures. The Committee further found that there was insufficient reliable evidence, on a balance of probabilities, to establish that the grievor demonstrated a conduct deficiency as outlined in the IC. However, the Committee concluded that the grievor exhibited a performance deficiency for not performing to the expected standard of an officer in the Canadian Armed Forces. The Committee was of the opinion that the grievor would have been better served by mentoring from her chain of command instead of being issued an IC.
The Committee recommended that the Final Authority afford the grievor redress by directing that the conduct IC be quashed and all references to it be removed from the grievor's personnel files.
