If a chief is frocked then is getting paid from the first of

Customer Question

if a chief is frocked then is getting paid from the first of the month (dec 1st)... then has his promotion recommendation removed after NJP on the 7th of that month (dec 7th), (mind you he is getting paid on the fifteenth of the month for the first half
of the month so he technically hasn't received any money but will on the 15th)... is that legal?

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.

Thank you for your question.
