The following formula is applicable when the person:

  • Was injured in PF or CFTS service

  • Is discharged from all forms of service

NWE = normal ADF rate of pay for the week + normal pay-related allowances for the week

where:

  • normal ADF rate of pay means the amount of ADF pay the member would have received for the week if not incapacitated for service; and

  • normal pay related allowances means the total compensable pay related allowances that the member would have received for the week if not incapacitated for service (see section 4.6).

The formula for calculating NWE under section 8(1) relies on average weekly hours and pay rates, as PF or CFTS members are not paid by the hour, and their salary does not vary, NWE is instead determined by their full-time ADF salary. 

The military pay scales are used to establish normal ADF pay (which, where applicable, includes Service Allowance). See section 4.5.3 for information on indexing the ADF component of NWE for a discharged member.

5.9.1 Normal Weekly Hours

Normal weekly hours for a former member who was injured in PF or CFTS service is 36.75hrs.
