I deployed on WRP 07. I was detatched from my unit to 1 Bn REME.During the detachment my pay and allowances were to be administered by my parent unit. Upon deployment my LSSA commenced. My Temp Duty Rates of Canadian LOA did not. The HR staff of 1 Bn informed my unit clerk of this and they passed the reply that it would be actioned for the end of Feburary along with the commencement of Married Unaccompanied food chargeafter the30 days. Guess what happened at the end of Feburary? No Temp LOA and no MU food charge! The wonderful 1 Bn HR staff (I'm serious here,they really went out of their way to help) called,faxed and e-mailedmy unit to ask "Why?". The same clerk/HR person then replied and I quote "I don't know how to do what needs doing", (This individual was a JNCO and a Class 1).The task was explained to the individual.Assurances were then given that all would occur on the pay run at the end of March.The individual was also reminded that due to the roll-out of JPA it was imperative that the situation was sorted. Guess what happened at the end of March? No Temp LOA and no MU food charge! The 1 Bn guys did their thing again and even called the world to see if it had been transmitted. IT HADN'T,UNSURPRISINGLY THE CLERK AT MY UNIT WAS UNAVAILABLE FOR COMMENT. I returned to my unit in the April,asked what could be done to remedy the situation. "It's a JPA problem now!" May 07-Married Unacompanied food charge taken in a ONER! Ta!!!!!! Still no Temp LOA! June 07- I was posted. Then deployed again to Canada until the October. Upon my return I asked my new HR staff to look into the problem.They discovered that only the food charge was ever entered onto JPA upon my return in the April. They have been busy ever since in trying to get my Temp Duty Rate LOA paid to me. I can only have the highest praise for the HR staff at 1Bn and my new unit for all they have done. The individual who didn't do their job properly "I DESPISE YOU". I know who the individual is but who is to blame? I know that sometime I will get what I'm owed,but can I make an application in the small claims court for the Intrest that money could have earnt in my ISA during the period of time it takes to pay me?
