31.2.9 NWE Summary by category of client - Reservist in Full-Time Service


The NWE of a Reservist injured whilst engaged in a period of full-time service – i.e. either call-up under the Defence Act or a contract of temporary full-time service – is determined in exactly the same way as for a permanent member of the full-time ADF.

Note, therefore, that the client's status was as a full-time employee of the ADF at the time of the injury and civilian earnings are not taken into account, i.e.:

  • neither while the period of full-time service runs its course
  • nor after return to part-time reserves status
  • nor after discharge from the Reserve.

Refer to 31.2.5 and 31.2.6 above for calculation of NWE for a full-time member.
