NSman Make-up Pay
Please advice which is the right procedure for NS man salary (1 week NS in June):
A. As usual company will pay his June salary. Wait for the NS to pay back his NS salary to company [or]
B. Company has to pay NS man salary (normal June salary + NS salary). Then wait for company to refund to company.

The usual way is to pay him as normal and claim make up pay through the NS portal. As such, we will need to contribute employer CPF for the staff during his absence for reservist. You will need to register for the password to access the NS portal as the employer.
In the NS portal, there are 2 options, one is for Mindef to pay the Employee or Mindef to reimburse the company. In our case, we take the 1st option for Mindef to pay the employee direct. We submit the claim in the portal and only pay the employee for the days he is working, the rest of the days on reservist will be considered as unpaid leave.
