Employer appealing mobilisation.

I have been told by my employer that they will be appealing my mobilisation.
I work for the NHS (band 2 cleaner) and my mobilisation is for an ongoing Op.

The main thing is I want to be mobilised.

I don't know how much input I or my regiment have in my case. Due to current climate I understand that my employer has a decent case.

If they rule in favour of my employer, can I appeal?

Again if they do, would I be able to hand my notice in at that point, so therefore go? Or would my mobilisation be withdrawn at that point therefore making that not an option.
 
Your employer, particularly with COVID-19, is going to win.

It also depends what you're doing. If you've a specialist skill, like you're the only specialist in fibre optics in the Army Reserve, and you're needed to wire a new SF base in Iraq you may win.

If it's TOSCA I wouldnt even bother planning to go.

Are you being mobiised for the Covid response? If so anyone who works for a Cat 1 Responder should not be mobilised, so not only does your employer have a good case, but your unit shouldn't be mobilising you.

So what paper do you work for?

It's for Cabrit.

Even so my employer is almost certainly going to get what they want. Understandably.

I've mobilised before, but there's never been cause to appeal. I was after any info on how the appeal works, and if worst case is there time from the decision being made for me to throw in the towel at work and run off to join the circus, or do I need to do it before then.

Will they (the person that decides this) speak to me, or am I in a suitation where 2 parents are sorting out who I live with without asking me anything?

Surely if you want to deploy that desperately, join the regular army?
 
With an inevitable shortage of NHS cleaners / housekeepers on the very-near horizon due to sickness, skivving and NFI- you’ll be serving your country more effectively (if less glamourously ;-)) where you are. This pandemic is the equivalent of a war for the NHS.
Not to say Cabrit might not prove to also be “interesting” but if that’s the direction you want to go why not join the army as a regular soldier?
 
It sounds like you’ve been unlucky. Mobilisation for Cabrit began before Covid-19 kicked off, but now it’s in full swing I would be surprised if an employer appeal was turned down. If nothing else it would be bad publicity for the army given an ongoing national emergency where medical and related professionals are going to be vital.

Not really. Band 2 NHS is slightly less than private soldier pay. There is no financial protection provided by mobilisation (ie top ups) other than that his job is protected on his return.

That risk is his to take. There will be others willing to take up his role if he leaves, so he won’t bring the NHS to its knees.
 
I'm on the opposite side of the coin

On of my driver supervisors has been asked by his unit of his availability. I would have legitimate grounds to appeal against it but I probably won't
I should, he'll be a big miss in difficult times but he'll probably be of more use to the country driving a green lorry instead of one of my white lorries.

You belong to the government, they need you in your day job more than they need you in the army.

Because no reservist has ever been messed around by the army ever.
 
Loads have, me included. But if he wants to take his chances then he should.
Leave a job with a guaranteed income at this time of national crisis?

You’d be a braver man than I am, Gunga Din!
