# 2021-142 Pay and Benefits, Class B Reserve Service, Post living differential

Class B Reserve Service, Post Living Differential (PLD)

Case summary

F&R Date: 2021-08-16

The grievor argued that he should be entitled to the Post Living Differential (PLD) for his position upon component transfer from the Regular Force (Reg F) to the Reserve Force (Res F). The grievor resided in a Post Living Differential Area and argued that, since he had been receiving the PLD benefit in the Reg F, he should continue to receive it in the Res F

The Initial Authority (IA) found that while the grievor accepted a nationally solicited Class “B” position, the grievor was not authorized to move his household goods and effects (HG&E) at public expense. Yet, according to Compensation and Benefit Instructions (CBI) 205.45(5), this authorization was required for entitlement to the PLD benefit in the Res F. The IA did not afford redress. 

The Committee found that the grievor was not entitled to the PLD benefit for his period of Class “B” service in accordance with CBI 205.45(5), as the grievor was not authorized a move of HG&E at public expense for the Res F position. The Committee recommended that the Final Authority (FA) not afford the grievor redress.  

FA decision summary

The FA, Director Canadian Forces Grievance Authority, agreed with the Committee's findings and recommendation, and declined to grant the redress sought.
