LEGAL TASKaYG OF RESERVE MEMBERS EMPLOYED I DEFENCE LEGAL
CANBERRA

1.   This minute stipulates some requirements to be met for the employment of Resema
members witbin Defence Leg4 (Canberra).

2,     The DL Executive requires greater visibility of the employment of Reserve rnmh
who work in DL (Canberra). It is not always clear what duties are being performed by the
individual Resave members and who that member is accountable to in raped ofthose duties,
Accordingly all Reserve membas who are employed in DL Canberra should complete the
pro-foma attached at h e x A and forward the original completed form to Diredorate of
Legal Resme Management @LRM) for retention, with a copy to be provided to the EA t     o
DGADFLS. If Reserve members are regularly employed, that i they perform the duties i
                                                               s                       n
DL Canbma at least once a month, they need only complete the pro-fma once every 12
calendar months.
3.     R-e     members who are also Australian Public Service (APS) members of DL
should wear unifbrm when performing Reserve duties i DL during normal working hours.
                                                      n
Rserve munbers who are perfbmhg duties are also reminded of the requirement to obtain
approval for Deface Leave (vidc a Form PA00521 if they would otherwise be working i     n
their APS capacity. The requirement to wear uniform will avoid any confusion as to the
capacity i which the member is perfarming duties. Exceptions to the wearing of uniform
          n
requirement can be approved on aa occasional basis by the DL Ditector tasking the R w e
member. This discretion should be exercised sparingiy and be guided by the same reasoning
which would apply when deciding to allow permanent ADF membqs to w q r civilian cloths
i the wodrplace.
 n

4.      Reserve members who are eligible for sessional fees and have a regdar training day
attendance (weekly, monthly o otherwise) in DL are not entitled to claim sessional fees
                               r
compensation on those attendance days. For example, a R m e member who is eligible for
smional fees commits to working on training days la DL on Friday of each week, could not
claim sessional fee compensation fbr any Friday during the period of that commitment. 'Ihis
situation arises because the member could not claim that on those Fridays, that the member
would have otherwise been engaged in a private professional capacity as a barrister or
solicitor.
5.     All DL Dkctors are requested to ensure that any Reserve personnel employed within
their Dhctomtes comply with the above requirements. If you have m queries on the detail
                                                                  y
