Paid time off.

If you're on an ADC then you're entitled to leave, I will have a total of 206.25 days both ADC and normal MTDs and have accrued 6 days leave, what you need to be aware of is the afore said leave needs to be included in the total of MTDs taken, ie my 6 days leave are part of the 206.25.

Your AO should be able to help you out.

pardon me for asking but that sounds a bit low to me.

The legal postion is 5.6 weeks per year, pro rata. If you work 5 days a week then you get 28 days a year ( 5.6*5=28 ) Most companies include the 8 days Banks Hols in that figure so the bare bones entitlement is 20 days

If you work 200 days a year then you should be looking at 3 days a week=ish ( 5.6*3=16.6 ) Minus 8 BH = 8.6 days.........

The law does not make any difference between ADC or MTD, all the law cares about is that you worked and were paid.

TA Regulations, Chapter 2, Part 5 makes interesting reading on the subject.

Exceed 117 voluntary days (independent units) or 109 days (specialist units)(other than on ADC or FTRS) and you need HQ LAND authorisation. Up to 90 days can be authorised by your CO (plus you get the 27/19 days of training commitment).

Presumably, you'd be entitled to leave if you exceed 117/109 days but if it hasn't been authorised by HQ LAND, not only is it likely that you won't get the leave but you'll also not get paid for the extra days.

Watch out for the comment at the bottom of your payslip "Thanks very much for the C2 training - much appreciated."

Alternatively, a real job ie one with a contract of employment will give you leave, entitlement to sick pay, employment protection and a pension.

Not knocking anyone on MTDS or ADC, but for the MoD to employ anyone on effectively a full time basis, whilst not providing any of the basic provisions of 21C employment law is, frankly, immoral.

ADC's being contracts are entitled to holiday pay, terminal pay, bank holidays and pensions. MTDs do not but attract HDT whereas ADC's do not.

It's all in the DIN which is actually very clear about the mix of pay, I'll hoke it out when on DII.

E.g On ADC you can work up to a max of 207 days but the 207 is made up of basic 27 MTDs, VOD and ADC making up the other 180. The leave will only be worked out on the ADC days which is a maximum of 2 per week (the other days being VOD MTD).

It is, as RH says, utterly immoral and playing the legislation to the hilt. The result is that MoD get pretty much the same effect as a "Full Time" Regular but only pay for 200 odd days and 2/10th of FA pension not 365 and a "proper" pension contribution. Miserable penny-pinching shite and proof that we are still a very long way from "One Army".

I'd love to see MoD defend that in an Industrial Tribunal........
