*  Civilian pay & allowances (and normal weekly hours) are based on a 2-week example period during which the person was continuously employed prior to beginning a period of CFTS and prior to discharge.

**  Reserve pay & allowances (and normal weekly hours) are based on a 1-year example period prior to beginning a period of CFTS and prior to discharge.

Delegates may determine example periods after the commencement of CFTS, or such periods as is reasonable.

Normal earnings default to the National Minimum Wage where the calculation otherwise results in less than the National Minimum Wage.
