Officially, these management tools are designed to improve, correct, and instruct those service members that depart from standards of performance, conduct, bearing, and integrity and whose actions degrade the individual and unit’s mission. While these tools are not supposed to be punitive, receiving negative administrative paperwork can have lasting career consequences.
For example, a Letter of Reprimand can be used as a basis to initiate an involuntary discharge proceeding. Furthermore, a Letter of Reprimand will most likely cause the service member to receive an undesirable performance report, which will effect the service member’s opportunity for promotion. The good news is that a service member has a right to respond to the allegations in the administrative paperwork.
Our goal is to help our clients receive the best possible outcome with the least impact to their career after being served with negative administrative paperwork. We will listen to the facts and circumstances of your situation and prepare the best rebuttal possible to protect your good name. Call us today, so we can discuss your options with you.
