Just after a little info from any of you legal eagles out there
can anyone stop a service complaint that has been put in because
they do not agree with its content ?
if someone were to do that ... what might be the consequences be for them ... even
shoukd the service complaint. It be upheld ... surely their action of stopping it going through
must be an offence if some sort
thanks in advance
It's not the man in the fight - it's the fight in the man.
Oc hr does not think it should be processed to some small degree they were involved in what the complaint is about
Agreed - if they're involved (even in a small way) and they attempt to stop it being processed, you're well within your rights to go over their head to keep it going (usually means going to Harry Staish, or perhaps outside the Unit). If they do manage to halt it, I would expect them tol fare far worse on a second attempt at a higher level (you may want to point that out to them - indications of guilt, etc...)
What I really want to know is
if I put a service complaint it it goes to P1 .... can anybody intercede and stop it proceeding
or does the service complaint system have protection built in that once it's started it needs to be proceeded through
to its conclusion
If its available to you try looking through JSP 831 that's for SC and redress or JSP 763. I'm no legal eagle but I'm sure only the complainant or CO can stop the process. There's info in JSP 831 about the SC ombudsman, its possible to go down that road if you think your flogging a dead horse.
If it smells like poo, it probably is poo
Get yourself to see an A/EDA or EDA, there is normally a list of us on P1 page on MOSS.
