The Employer Support Payment Scheme (ESPS) provides financial
 assistance to eligible employers of reservists and self-employed reservists,
 when the reservist is absent from their civilian workplace on eligible periods
 of Defence service.

For reservists in full-time employment, ESPS payments are made at a 
set weekly equivalent to Full-Time Adult Average Weekly Ordinary Time 
Earnings (AWOTE).

For FY 2020/2021 the rate is $1,658.70 per week.

A pro-rata payment may be made for a part-time employee.
