30.3.2 Reserve Force - part-time service but with no civilian employment


In cases where a reservist has no other earned income at the date of injury, the delegate may establish pre-injury weekly earnings by either:

  • add to the established Reserves component of his/her income, a 'deemed' civilian earnings on the basis of recognised industry rates for the clients established, formal trade qualifications

Or, alternatively

  • subsume both known reserves income and conjectural civilian work capacity into a single amount calculated as (7 x Reserves daily rate). This is the preferred option, unless the client has established formally qualified skills in his/her 'usual' civilian employment, and a history of earning thereby 7 x daily rate.
