It is relevant in the event that you choose to go to the FSPO though. The FSPO staff won't proceed unless they receive a copy of your acknowledgement of rejection.I have long argued that this document is irrelevant.
But if you want to reject it and send it back, do so. It costs you nothing.
The FSPO would not allow our complaint to proceed to investigation stage without a copy of confirmation that we had rejected the findings of the Appeals Panel. To be honest I also had thought it was useless but it clearly has some reasoning behind it.Hi SS
I hadn't realised that. I had assumed that the rejection itself was sufficient. I don't remember doing that in the few cases I was involved with.
