Frequently Asked Questions


I was recalled to duty from home, what could I claim?

Travel time between home and your usual place of duty is generally not duty time.

Such travel time shall only be treated as a period of duty when you are:

  •  Required to perform your normal daily period of duty in more than our tour (Split Duty) Or
  •  Recalled to work between two tours of duty and you travel to and from your home between tours.

In calculating any period of overtime in respect of being recalled between two tours of duty, an officer can only claim for the time worked plus travelling time (1 hour). The minimum of 4 hours pay for a recall to duty has been abolished.
