7.5 Calculation of maximum rate (compensation) weeks for Reserve Force members

Document
Last amended

In order to accurately and fairly calculate the effect of reserve force incapacity on the 45 weeks entitlement it is necessary to express the 45 week entitlement as a total dollar liability. This assists in overcoming the conceptual difference between normal weekly hours in civilian employment and normal weekly hours in Reserve employment. A detailed example of this calculation method (demonstrated under the SRCA legislation) can be found in DCI 6, Attachment C, paragraph 14.
