31.8.1 Military Salary substitutes for hourly calculation (NH x RP) at S8(1)


The S8(1) formula for computing NWE is (NH x RP) + A where the element
(NH x RP) stands for (average weekly hours x average weekly pay rate). In fact, full-time serving ADF members are not paid by the hour but receive a weekly salary. This weekly salary does not vary with the hours worked. The weekly salary and service allowance applicable to an individual can instead be determined by reference to those Military Pay Scales current for the relevant period.

Therefore, for this class of client the NWE can be said to be:

ADF Salary for rank/pay level + Service Allowance + Other allowances payable

Thus the Military Pay Scales (which contain both salary and allowance rates) are primary sources for determining NWE.
