Hi all, my Regiment has just had a "JNCO Study day" in which they did a bit of Phys, some team building stuff and a Q and A session by the RSM and CO. Everything was going well until the CO stood up and started banging on about fitness and what was expected of JNCO's etc, etc. He then said that while he was CO, he refuses to promote anyone that is medically downgraded/medically unfit. This was then backed up by a letter from the RSM to all the sub units in which he spells out that anyone that can't do PT is to be given sh1t jobs until they are mended. Our non-Infantry Regiment is considered fairly fit, we do PT 4 times a week so injuries do occur and their is hardly any time for recovery. I understand that It's the CO's and RSM's trainset, but my question is, do they have the legal right to stop a soldiers career dead because he is medically downgraded, or is this something that MCM have to deal with all the time? The reason I'm asking is that many NCO's are considering legal action because they believe that the employer is being discriminatory towards what is effectively someone with a temporary/permanent disability Anyone like to have a crack at answering?
