8.1.7 Coverage of persons invited to attend PR camps, demonstrations etc


Similarly, occasions have been known where civilian employers of reservists have (as an ADF public relations exercise), been invited to attend a reserves camp and sample those activities that their employees undertake in their Reserves role. Even though this event may involve the civilian employers voluntarily placing themselves under the control of an ADF officer, they are not ADF employees and any injury is not covered by the SRCA. Once again, their remedy if injured lies with a civil action for negligence against the Commonwealth.
