13.2.11 Rest period benefits


Example 1: A member travels from Sydney to Los Angeles direct. The journey is six time zone hours. The member is eligible for two rest periods and takes them on arrival in Los Angeles.

Example 2: A member is approved to travel from Sydney to New York via London (indirect). The time zone difference between Sydney and New York by the direct route is nine time zone hours, so the member is eligible for two rest periods. The member chooses to take one rest period in London and one on arrival in New York.


A member who takes recreation leave is still eligible for a rest period under section 13.2.11.
