There are 2 patterns of flexible service determination:
Under a flexible service determination (weeks per month pattern of service), you’ll have your days of duty determined. For the days you aren’t on duty, you’re considered to be on part-time leave without pay.
Your weeks per month pattern of service may not affect your eligibility for benefits. If you meet the required conditions, you may still qualify for the benefit.
Under a flexible service determination (days per fortnight pattern of service), you’ll have your days of duty determined.
For the days you aren’t on duty, you’re considered to be on part-time leave without pay.
You may get a salary, allowances, contributions and other conditions of service as if you were on part-time leave without pay.
More information about flexible service determinations can be found in the ADF Pay and Conditions Manual, Chapter 2 Part 1A.
As the name suggests, this Member's Guide is designed as a guide to help you understand how your pay and conditions work. It is not a legal document. Therefore, if there is any conflict between the Member's Guide and Defence Determination 2016/19, Conditions of Service (and the Determinations made by the Defence Force Remuneration Tribunal), as compiled in PACMAN, PACMAN is the authority.
This Member's Guide does not incorporate or make provision for members on a flexible service determination.
