Q & A Session – Memorandum of Record


Ask the Lawyer received the following question (paraphrased for easier reading and clarity) from a reader on a legal matter that might be of interest to the entire audience.


I was given a memorandum of record for being late three different times by a military officer who is not my supervisor. It was pushed down through my chain of command. What recourse do I have?


A memorandum of record is not a disciplinary action. It is a notice that, as perceived by others, you were late. If you think the memorandum of record is wrong you could put your own version of facts in the record, but that might be counterproductive.
