Not sure if many know, but AIP for AETS has been unattainable for 4 years due to the removal of the peeps examine. It has now been reinstated but no back pay is being offered. Under the JSP 754 it states: "Where an AIP qualification is subsequently added to the list, anyindividuals who already have the qualification may be awarded AIP from the date that it was added. There will be no retrospective payments." Which means they are right in not offering it. But I can't help but feel ripped of here since 4 years to change a discontinued qualification seems a little long, and would work out at about £3500 pay owed to someone just after the exam was removed. So does anyone know of any channels that can be pursued for back pay, or if there is a legal claim on any grounds, since it is a advertised pay incentive for the branch. Thanks for any help.
