signed off

#1
friend off mine signed off recently and trying to sign back on still waiting for a answer. Was wondering she never had a interview with the rcmo never signed anything saying she had interview with any one about signing off .....She has nothing which she has signed to say signed off like no contract except jpa question is ......Jpa a legal binding document ?

So your friend took a conscious decision to ignore the CofC, log on to JPA and go through the process of signing off. She didn’t do it by accident because she didn’t report it to the CofC.

Now that she is getting cold feet, she wants the same people who she chose to circumnavigate to support her case in signing back on by claiming that there is no legality in the system she used, however, if she wanted to continue down the path to getting out she would insist that the very same system is the way ahead.

Or am I missing something :wink:

In no particular order;

1. Learn to use punctuation.
2. If it is a "mate" WTF has it got to do with you anyway?
3. If you have given notice to terminate on JPA then that is sufficient. That is what JPA is for.
4. With the Army at full manning once NTT has been given it is less likely to be reversed. So I guess your "friend" is leaving after all.

Moral of the story-think before you sign off (oh and learn to use punctuation).

Signing off on a whim, mmmmm incredibly stupid thing to do in the current economic climate. Good luck with the job centre.

ha ha....never would i trust JPA and i'm pretty sure it states you must see Chief at the least so they can confirm it and action the pay/pension side....what a tube!! JPA log in is there for a reason, what she gonna say, that she did it drunk?? i've gobbed it many a time bout signing off but after a small chat beforehand i've always been talked into thiunking what a cnut i was being.

tell your 'friend' that she should tell all her unit so they can learn from her very silly mistake!!

To the OP.

Yes, signing off on JPA, even if you don't do any interviews, counts as a document for signing off.

So your mate IS signed off and in her last 12months.

Whether her CoC decide to support her remount or not will depend on many things.... like, is she worth retaining? Is she an admin diaster area? Is she a discipline nightmare?

Perhaps suggests she speaks to her CoC. She may well need an interview with the RCMO also.

She'll no doubt face the following choices (not that she will be the one making it). 1. Carry on normal jogging. 2. Retrade within her capbadge. 3. Retrade out of current capbadge. 4. Good luck in civvie strasse.

Her CoC may not have much of a say in this either... depending on her trade and capbadges current manning or policy on remounts (ie. No remounts for admin vortexs)

In my last place we had an absolute eejit sign off, then ask for early release as he had a job offer. The job offer fell through, possibly because the employer realised he was a complete chopper and a G1 drama queen. He asked for an extension to his early release rather than signing back on. He was told to eff off. Chuffed to bits. Caaaaahnt!

I really don't know why the 'sign off' option is presented to the young lads.

It should only be presented when someone (ie the Sqn 2ic or RAO/RAWO) activates it, or it should have an automatic send on to the RCMO/resettlement officer/CoC. Not for the scroats benefit, but so the CoC can admin this sort of stuff.

I agree; I was quite astonished to see how easy it was to sign off (almost managed to do it myself...).

I think this is badly implemented in JPA - unless that was the intention!! :D

It's a very valid point.

Even leave has to be applied for, and approved in the workflow by the line manager.

As much as laughing at a stroppy scrote getting seen off because they pushed the button is amusing, surely JPA should merely present a "request to terminate service" rather than a big yellow/black eject button.

It does, but it goes to the RCMO.

I've had a right saddo on my case today about his discharge date. He got fucked right off at the high port.

Like I said, I don't make the sodding rules. I just have to abide by them. Sticky dog toffee, I agree, but I didn't make them up. I can do jiggery pokery with lots of stuff on JPA, but I can't make the rules.

My apologies.

Take your fat face for a shite Fuggers xxx

You don't mention if your "friend" has had confirmation of her previous decision, these things go via various people's workflow before hitting your MS people at Glasgow for authority, once Actioned she would get workflow back confirming termination date. I'm surprised your unit doesn't have a system in place to call you to interview before the CO hits the button (he must do this to fire it to Glasgow!) All RTT come through me at our place before the CO!

Maybe your "friend" is that much of a vortex that the workflow just carried on flowing!!
