Relocation Leave

#1
Can someone please explain to me why on posting the relocation leave is only an option if moving from an Army married quarter to another Army married quarter? At the end of this year 2 of my CSgts and myself are posted. They are moving to an Army post and will get 2 weeks leave. I am going to a Tri Service post and get one day! I have read the regulations and it states that this is because the RAF and the RN do not get the 2 week entitlement, well whoopy do! Last time I checked I wear green. Change the rules for the other services, do not punish the soldier.

1100/195 CHANGES TO RELOCATION LEAVE AND RENLEAVE


References:

A. Army Leave Manual 2000.
B. D/DPS(A)/PS4(A)/26/1 dated 21 Jun 06.

1. Changes to Relocation Leave and RENLEAVE were notified at Reference B. Although Reference B refers to JSP 760 (Tri-Service Regulations for Leave and Other Types of Absence), this JSP does not become effective for Army personnel until JPA Army Go-live. Notwithstanding, the changes to the 2 types of leave are authorised are to take effect as stated in Reference B.

2. Relocation Leave. Relocation leave for moves within UK and Northern Ireland will increase from one to 10 working days for trained strength personnel only after joining their first unit. Thereafter, this will apply to all moves resulting from a posting order and involving a change of SFA, SLA or substitute equivalents. This entitlement is not shared by the RN and RAF, and therefore will only apply to moves between Army units, or from Joint or other Services to Army units. Army to Joint or Army to other Service moves will only qualify for the current one day within UK and 10 days from overseas as set out in Reference A. The leave is to be set against the receiving unit's establishment, and should be allowed for when specifying reporting dates on individual assignment orders. In the case of reverse handovers, the relocation leave is to be taken immediately prior to finally starting work with the new unit. The increased entitlement will apply to all assignments resulting from assignment orders issued after 21 Jun 06 (inclusive) not those personnel assigned after 21 Jun 06.

3. RENLEAVE. Although the normal requirement is to take RENLEAVE as soon as possible after qualifying and certainly within 3 years of qualification, with immediate effect RENLEAVE may now be added to terminal leave or extended beyond the 3 year point, in extremis. Therefore, the new rule will only apply in exceptional circumstances. When such a requirement arises a formal case explaining the reason for delay beyond 3 years or addition to terminal leave should be submitted to higher authority, normally the brigade commander, for authorisation.

So it is another screw up with JPA that has brought this in? 29 years service and had 12 quarters, the first time I get to move and not have to use my own leave then this pathetic rule appears.

RAF here - Married 15 years and 8 quarters, never had any extra leave. So in the spirit of jointery, have my Human Rights been abused here? Would I have some claim to compo or a couple of months of buckshee leave??

were there's blame there's a claim...

This is fairly new for the Army. I do not understand why the RAF and RN do not get this entitlement? In most cases, and this is not sour grapes, you had it better with things like house purchase assistance and a possible career to age 55 etc. Now they come up with a perk for the Army and still manage to screw it up.

Soldier why do you have anything in the regulations there to say that a soldier can only claim for a journey back to a uk address where their Emergency contact is. Surly if this is the case personnel who want to travel elsewhere are been penalised. Do you have it in black and white as my clerks cannot find it.

JSP 752 SECTION 5, CHAPTER 3
GET YOU HOME (EARLY YEARS)

GENERAL

05.0301.
Aim. The aim of Get You Home (Early Years) (GYH(EY)) is to enable
junior members of the Services in the UK to maintain links with their close
family/friends and home area while they adjust to Service life. The allowance is for
journeys between the Service person’s duty station or Residence at Work Address
(RWA) in the UK and a qualifying address in the UK or the Republic of Ireland. The
allowance is normally warrant based.

05.0302. Income Tax and National Insurance Contributions (NICs). GYH(EY)
is non-taxable.

DEFINITIONS

05.0303.
Qualifying Service. Qualifying service, for the purposes of GYH(EY) is
defined as the first 3 years of full-time service on a regular commission or
engagement. Previous service in the Regular Armed Forces is to be counted when
assessing eligibility for GYH(EY).

05.0304. Qualifying Addresses. Qualifying addresses are to be restricted to the
addresses of the following:

a. A registered Next-of-Kin/Emergency Contact.
b. A parent/guardian or close blood relative.
c. A parent/guardian or close blood relative of the Service person’s
spouse/civil partner.
d. A fiancé(e), intended civil partner or long-standing friend.
e. A residence where the Service person has established a home.
f. A Boarding School where the Service person has a child(ren) being
educated.
g. An address in an area in which the Service person intends to settle after
discharge. This is applicable only to those who have a firm discharge date
within 6 months of the date of the GYH(EY) journey. Any address is eligible,
including a hotel, boarding house, or the home of a friend or relative in the
chosen area, but Subsistence Allowance may not be claimed.

05.0305. Entitlement Year. An entitlement year is a period of 12 months. The
first entitlement year commences from the first day of recruit or initial officer training.
The subsequent 2 entitlement years commence from the anniversary of that date.

ELIGIBILITY

Eligible Service Personnel. All Regular Service personnel will be
eligible for GYH(EY), irrespective of PStat Cat, if they are on a full-time regular
commission or engagement, are within their first 3 years of service and assigned in the
UK. For Reserve personnel, this eligibility is unlikely to extend beyond Full Time
Reserve Service (Full Commitment) (FTRS (FC)) and mobilised personnel. Former
regular service counts towards the initial 3-year maximum period. Eligibility to
GYH(EY) will continue when Service personnel are in receipt of GYH Travel or LSA.

INELIGIBILITY

05.0307.
Ineligible Service Personnel. Service personnel are ineligible if:
a. They have completed 3 years or more full-time service on a regular
commission or engagement or on Full-Time Reserve Service or mobilised,
