Frocking is a process of allowing a person to wear the rank they've been selected to before the promotion officially occurs. The person is not officially promoted, therefore, is not paid at that rank.
So, this person may have been frocked to chief, but he/she was not getting paid as a chief.
Moreover, is a person is frocked, they have not officially been promoted, so an NJP is grounds for the command to delay or deny a promotion to the rank of chief.
