3 years and a bit after graduating Iâm finally getting out of the contracting game and am now beginning to negotiate my first permanent contract. All other details aside Iâm wondering if and, if so then, how I should try to work the TA into my new contract. I gather, both from ARRSE and the chaps at my unit, that employers have various trains of thought when it comes to us. From the sounds of things some employers give a few extra days paid leave for annual camp, others give unpaid leave, and the remainder give bugger all. Is there any kind of legal requirement for my employer to give me extra time off, be it paid or unpaid, or is this purely down to their generosity? With regards to job security and mobilisationâ¦ My employer already knows Iâm with the TA but there is no record of this other than a single sentence on my CV. Would it be worth me getting them to acknowledge this in my contract so that when I do eventually deploy they wont be able to try and demote/sack me under the pretence that they never knew it was a possibility, or would I be better off just keeping quiet about the whole thing. Any feedback/comments from the voices of experience would be much appreciated.
