Re-engagement leave is a period of authorised absence granted to Service personnel who joined the Services before 31 Mar 99 as an inducement to commit for a further period of service and as compensation for the postponement of terminal leave.
20 working days’ re-engagement leave may be granted provided that the extension or re-engagement does not take place during, or on completion of, terminal leave. Re-engagement leave will be permitted only for one instance of extension or re-engagement, after which entitlement will be forfeited. Service personnel, however, who are granted a period of re-engagement leave prior to 1 Apr 99, will retain a reserved right to further period of re-engagement leave upon successful re-engagement to complete 22 years’ service.
Under no circumstances will more than one period of re-engagement leave be permitted.
