Good afternoon,I am a serving Army Officer

Customer Question

Good afternoon. I am a British Army Officer stationed in Germany. Under Army rules I am obliged to give 1 years notice to terminate my contract. However, there exists a scheme whereby I can apply for early release which normally takes 6-8 weeks subject to the approval of my commanding Officer and an agency known as Defence Manning (army). In September of this year I applied to terminate my contract and on Thursday of this week I submitted an application for early release as I have been offered an employment which starts in late November. My Commanding Officer has indicated that he may not sanction my early release. I am not currently obliged to deploy on operations in support of the Uk govt. is there any legal recourse to insist on my release?
