Forced Promotion Deferral
« on: January 30, 2018, 15:39:14 »
Good Day,

I am being told that there is a chance that i will be forced to defer a promotion  and not be posted due to trouble finding someone to fill my current position.

Anyone know the policy surrounding this?

May I ask what is your current rank?
Policy is more than black and white.  We need to not only understand the spirit of why a policy was written, but also how the policy affects people.

Not sure if the officer side of the house works differently, but if you're skipped over (as in they promote above and below you on the merit list), your promotion is guaranteed for December of that year - you'll just be overranked in the position.  Or at least that's how it unfolded for me 10 or so years ago.

I deferred promotion to LCol by a year to stay in a SOFCOM unit as the DCO. 

Don't think you can be forced to defer a promotion. 

I volunteered......probably stupidly deferred,  but I wouldn't do anything different in the same situation again.

You CoC and trade can elect not to post you for the subsequent APS, promote you 1 Dec, employ you, over-ranked for 6 months and post you two APS later (ie: picked up on the 2017 board, promoted 1 Dec 2018 posted APS 19.

I don't remember seeing any policy that requires someone has to be promoted during APS. It sucks you're out a few months of pay but not much you can do.
