Military Reservists

  • Posted

The Reserve Forces (Payments to Employers and Partners) Regulations 2014 have been published - coming into force on 1st October 2014.

At present, when called up, military reservists are paid directly by the Ministry of Defence - and employers can claim expenses in respect of additional costs incurred whilst replacing the reservist (to a maximum of £110 per day).

From 1st October, small and medium employers will also be able to receive up to £500 per month for each full month a reservist is absent from work (reduced pro rata for parts of a month, or part-time workers).
