Recall to duty

What can I claim if recalled to duty from home?

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 one 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 over-time in respect of being recalled between two tours of duty, an officer can only claim for the time worked plus travelling time (one hour).
  • The minimum of four hours pay for a recall to duty has been abolished.
