All staff (other than casuals) are entitled to the following provisions.
4.11 Defence Leave
4.11.1 You will be entitled to an annual maximum paid period of leave of 20 working days to enable you to engage in training as a member of the Australian Defence Force (ADF) Reserve and it is recognised that additional leave may be required for special instruction.
4.11.2 Leave for induction training during your first year as an ADF Reservist may be up to an additional paid period of leave of 10 working days.
4.11.3 Where certified that there is a need for additional training or overseas deployment and entitlements in 4.11.1 and 4.11.2 have already been taken, further leave may be granted without pay or you may access other leave entitlements, e.g. annual leave, long service leave.
4.11.4 If you have approved ADF Reserve service leave you are to submit a copy of the ADF Reserve service notice to your supervisor as soon as practicable.
4.11.5 If you are engaged in the ADF Reserve service and taking leave of more than 10 working days in any financial year, you will need to complete with the assistance of your supervisor an application form for the ADF Employer Support Payment Scheme (ESPS) and forward the completed form to Human Resources.
4.11.6 If you are part-time, you will be entitled to leave without pay for the first 12 months of employment with the University. After 12 months of employment with the University, if you are part-time or casual staff member you will be entitled to paid defence leave on a pro-rata basis. The structure of this will be determined on an individual basis dependent upon the hours worked and the entitlement to claim ADF ESPS.
4.11.7 If you are recognised as an ADF Reservist you are responsible for advising your supervisor of ADF Reserve service commitments as soon as identified even if specific dates are not yet known. The University also acknowledges that short notice commitments can occur and as such will be dealt with specifically on a case-by-case basis.
4.11.8 When your absence while on ADF Reserve service is going to cause difficulties for the work area, your supervisor is to contact Human Resources. Human resources will contact the ADF to seek identification of possible alternatives for your ADF Reserve service.
4.11.9 Any monies from the ADF ESPS will be paid directly to the respective school/branch budget to assist in resourcing the temporarily vacant position when you are away for more than 10 working days in any financial year.
