[Moved Posts] Wrongful termination of SLRP?
Okay, I cannot figure out how to start a New Thread?? But what do you guys think about this?
Wrongfully terminated? Know of any loopholes? Am i just screwed?
I was in a ARNG deployable unit in one state, where I received my SLRP and everything was great.
I transferred out of state, for a federal tech job with the Army NG two months ago and this is where everything got messed up.
When I was in the process of transferring i told the inter-state transfer guy, who's supposed to find me a unit, that I had to be in a deployable unit to retain my SLRP. When I got to my new state, new job, new unit, I find out, my new unit is non-deployable. So i contacted the inter-state transfer guy and he basically said well, we pulled a lot of strings to get you where you are, I think you'll be okay, I've never heard of anyone being terminated for this. I then took it upon myself to contact a few units in the area to see if they needed anyone of my MOS, none of them did. I brought it up to my Federal Technician boss's, they contacted recruiting and retention, who informed them that I WOULD BE FINE. I contacted the SLRP department and they said, when the time comes I won't just be terminated, they will work with me. My federal tech boss's informed my Unit 1SG, who said I would be fine. So everyone knew about it.
Okay well guess what, the time came just last week to submit my SLRP paperwork and I get an email from the SLRP program manager saying I will be terminated in 30 days because I failed to maintain a deployable TDA!!! Now everyone is fighting for me to retain the SLRP, but they aren't, most likely, going to let me.
What do you guys think, grossly unjust or rules are rules??
If you think I was just sitting back taking a free ride in a non-deployable unit, wrong... I contacted people to try to change units, I volunteered for deployment twice, I want to deploy, badly. I have no reason to try to get out of it.
In my job, if i was to give someone false information like R&R gave us, and someone spent money on something they shouldn't have, I WOULD BE CHARGED! Why should they be able to just say, screw this guy?
