Grounds for transfer to another military unit - information deskWhat are the reasons to transfer to another part?

The grounds for transfer are:

  • Health status. To confirm it, it is necessary to provide the relevant opinion of the Military Medical Commission. If you feel and observe obvious signs of deterioration in your health, you should start by writing a report regarding referral to the Military Medical Commission. It is written in the name of the immediate commander. At the same time, not everything can go smoothly here either. Sometimes the human factor comes into play
  • Family reasons. For example, it may be the need to be closer to a spouse or husband with a disability in order to be able to provide assistance if necessary. Variants of family circumstances may be different, but their list is established by current legislation. In addition, relevant documents must be provided to confirm such circumstances.
  • Conclusion of job description. If the competences and personal qualities of a military person are more conducive to him performing work better in another part where he is needed, this can also be a reason for transfer.
  • Service necessity or organizational measures. These grounds are also detailed in the current legislation. If you are interested in their clarification from professional lawyers, you can contact the team of the Prikhodko&Partners law office.
