What is the punishment for Article 15?

The first is a summary Article 15, which is often applied by a company grade officer. A summary of Article 15 allows for a maximum punishment of 14 days of extra duty and/or restriction, admonition or spoken reprimand, or any combination of these. A more serious violation may lead to a sentence of 30 days or more in jail, a fine, or both.

The second step is an Article 15 charge, which can be filed by an employee's supervisor if they believe that the employee violated the company's sexual harassment policy. An Article 15 charge can result in significant disciplinary action, including dismissal. Employees should not worry about what punishment will be imposed if they are found guilty of a crime related to sexual harassment; instead, they should focus on whether there was criminal intent behind their actions. For example, an employee who makes a mistake when checking women's clothing at night using headlight does not intend to offend anyone so he or she does not pose a threat of bodily injury or harm to property. This type of offense falls under "negligent conduct," which means that it is not intended to cause harm and so cannot be considered a crime against someone's dignity or privacy as defined in Article 15.

What are the maximum punishments under Article 15?

The maximum sanctions that may normally be imposed on enlisted members under Article 15 are as follows: Article 15 of the Field Grade (Imposed by a Major/Lieutenant Commander or above) Restriction: 60 days, or 45 days if paired with additional duty. No official call-up for additional duty during this time can extend the restriction beyond 60 days.

The maximum sanction that may be imposed on officers under Article 15 is dismissal from the service. This includes those officers who have been found guilty of a crime and sentenced to confinement or other punishment by a court-martial. In such cases the findings and sentence are reviewed by the officer's chain of command. If approved, the offender is dismissed from the service. If not approved, or in case of nonjudicial punishment, then the officer is returned to duty without any further action.

Officers found guilty of a serious offense will usually be restricted from further participation in matters relating to the investigation or prosecution of others. They may be assigned duties within the office or department with no involvement in investigations or prosecutions. The commander may also decide that an officer be separated from the service with discharge prior to trial if there is a substantial risk that continued employment would compromise the integrity of the system or prejudice fair trial rights.

Officers found guilty of a minor offense will usually be counseled on their conduct.

Is it possible for officers to obtain an Article 15?

Article 15s are meant to be applied primarily for minor disciplinary issues, but commanders will occasionally give one to an officer or other high-ranking member of the military to avoid more severe punishment for significant disciplinary violations. An article 15 can also be called a letter of reprimand.

An officer can receive only one article 15 during his or her career. If he or she is found guilty of another serious offense, the previous article 15 would be used as evidence that there was a pattern of misconduct and no article 15 would be granted this time.

The decision to grant or deny an article 15 is up to the commander who can accept any reason for granting or denying one. However, good order and discipline is usually given priority over personal matters such as retirement benefits or privileges.

In general, officers can be separated from the service for various reasons including physical disability, mental illness, charges by the government under certain conditions, etc. Some officers may voluntarily leave the service due to personal reasons such as retirement or because they were promoted into a non-combat role.

If you're an officer and want to know whether you could be discharged for cause, check with your command's legal department. They'll be able to tell you if there are any conditions associated with your offense that would prevent you from being granted an article 15 or not.

What are the three types of article 15?

Article 15s are classified at three levels: summary, business grade, and field grade. Summary Article 15s cover general policies relating to foreign affairs that have been approved by the National People's Congress (NPC) and the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC). They can be adopted at any time and apply to all departments of the government. Business Article 15s deal with matters related to specific agencies or programs. Field Grade Articles 15 are issued by offices within an agency that deal with issues not covered by their superiors. For example, a director may have his or her own policy on trade with certain countries; thus, he or she would issue an Article 15 for those policies.

Summary articles become effective upon publication in the official newspaper of the State Council, China Daily. They can also be published in other newspapers or magazines at any time after they are passed. The secretary of the department responsible for issuing the summary will notify other departments when it is being issued and give them the opportunity to review and comment on its contents. Departments must accept or reject the summary in whole or in part; if they do not respond by the given date, it becomes effective as written. A rejected summary can still be included in future editions of China Daily.
