    Medical travel reimbursement

    Lot's of hearsay and lots of appeals to authority in there, but nothing of any value - well, the idea that being in the CAF is in anyway correlated with credibility has some comedic value I guess.

    Medical travel reimbursement

    Didn't state that he went there the same day. I doubt he went to see the clerks at 0500 before his 0630 surgery. What is this, your 3rd or 4th version of what's going on here? I can't keep track. This latest interpretation seems to directly conflict with the one below, you sure didn't seem to...

    Medical travel reimbursement

    I cannot believe the lengths you will go to... anyone can read the posts and see you are clearly trying to talk out of both sides of your mouth. You were responding to me, quoting my post, and the idea that if the member wants to quote policy and ask that it be applied correctly, you'll find a...

    Medical travel reimbursement

    You're just taking us full circle back to "Yes, unfortunately it's difficult to protect the CAF's members from leaders that lack integrity and character, hence all the scandals in the news and public and membership's loss of confidence in the CAF's leadership." I've addressed this already, if...

    Medical travel reimbursement

    I wish I had such magick superpowers that I could just ignore all written policy presented to me, type something out completely opposite and it be true. You just can't accept you're in the wrong even when it's given to you in black and white. This isn't a critical studies class where you can...

    Medical travel reimbursement

    That all depends on all the other factors involved. Having a member drive 50km North to Base to get a vehicle, and then 50km south to go to their appointment, and then 50km north again to return the vehicle, and then 50km south to get back home, would be galactically stupid. Also, not every base...

    Medical travel reimbursement

    That's literally the policy that's been quoted in here numerous times, with links, and it does not, in any way, say what you are saying it says. It says medical travel outside of the geographical area is under the CDU and that medical travel inside the geographical area falls under the Base...

    Medical travel reimbursement

    My private sector employer also doesn't spend countless hours trying to figure out how to nickel and dime me, going to great lengths and wasting numerous other resources to try and figure out how they can avoid reimbursing me an extra $20.

    Medical travel reimbursement

    Not accurate at all. If the member requests to use their PMV, then the "method established under the authority of the CDS, the cost of the more economical and practical mode of transportation" is used... that method is the cost-comparison and it doesn't have military transport / crown vehicles...

    Medical travel reimbursement

    So if he lives on the south side of town, 5km from the appointment, and the base is 30km north, he should be reimbursed for 60km? Base-to-appointment and back? Even though he only drives 10km? I don't know many employers that do a lot of the stupid shit the CAF does, I probably wouldn't use...

    Medical travel reimbursement

    This entire thread has been giving me anxiety for days and watching it turn into a bun fight reminds me why I need to stop coming on this site while I am still decompressing from the years of stupidity I had to endure in the CAF. I'm not sure I've seen more incorrect statements said in one go...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    I understand the difference. The nomenclature in civilian professions is different. In civilian professions, the term "discipline" includes performance issues. The things the CAF considers "discipline" i.e. legal offences, are referred to civilian courts. Military nomenclature. Legal =...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    10 years post-OFP was long enough to not fall victim that train of thought any longer. Eventually I learned the meaning behind the phrase "cast not pearls before swine" and stopped devaluing my own self worth by staying in the CAF. My new employer and our clients seem to appreciate my time and...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    No, you definitely didn't. Everyone below the standard should be on remedial measure, yes. Everyone else has either met the standard, exceeded the standard, or mastered that particular skillset for their rank level. By golly, it's almost like the word "standard" means something and it's almost...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    I had written up a response to all of this, and then I realized you're not reading anything I'm writing and just countering arguments I've never made such as this: That'd be a fine rebuttal if I had said supervisors should be able to give someone a Needs Improvement or Unacceptable without...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    That is literally the reason they exist, to inform people of their shortcomings and course correct them. While the nuts and bolts of that system can be improved (it's insane that an "IC" requires a "monitoring period" for example... an IC should essentially be a written note saying "you are not...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    You and I have had two very experiences then. I fully agree with btrudy that many people can't separate the two, if you need evidence just read the last three pages of this thread where it's clear some people don't even understand the nomenclature being used, or literally every time...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    Let's not forget, we can have an open and transparent system without a hearing for absolutely everything. The system as it currently exists... a NOI* following by the member's representations, following by a decision, with an appeals route (grievance system) is not terrible except that it lacks...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    Did the offence itself not reach the bar, or was there not enough evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt but the evidence did meet the balance of probabilities?

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    Removing someone from their position is an administrative action. Everything in yellow that you're upset about in this case is a symptom of not having a system that is transparent and open, and can literally only be solved by more openness and transparency. Everyone seems to forget that one...
