Military Specific Benefits

We salute the courage and commitment of our Guard and Reserve employees. Through monthly training exercises or year-long deployments, Turner takes care of its own. As a part-time military member, you can count on industry-leading military leave and pay policies from Turner. And of course, you also receive the same benefits package enjoyed by all Turner employees.

For our purposes, “military service” means: active duty, active duty for training, initial active duty for training, inactive duty training, full-time National Guard duty, absence from work for examination to determine fitness for duty and funeral honors duty performed by the National Guard or reserve members. “Uniformed services” means: the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, Coast Guard, Army Reserve, Naval Reserve, Marine Corps Reserve, Air Force Reserve, Coast Guard Reserve, Army National Guard, Air National Guard, Commissioned Corps of the Public Health Service, and any other category of persons designated by the President in time of war or emergency.

Leave of Absence

USERRA (Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act) provides for a leave of absence for a cumulative period of up to five (5) years. Therefore, Turner employees who are called to qualified military service in the uniformed services are eligible under USERRA for a leave of absence of up to five years, and for certain benefits described below.

Job Reinstatement & Nondiscrimination

When the military duty leave ends, the length of time that the employee has to contact Turner depends on the amount of time spent in service.

Differential Compensation

While on military leave, eligible employees will receive “Differential Compensation” for up to six months. Differential Compensation is the difference in compensation between military pay and what the employee would normally receive as base salary from Turner.

Reserve or National Guard Training

The employee will remain on the payroll and will continue to receive benefits. The employee will be paid the difference between their regular base salary and their regular base military salary for two weeks.

Vacation Leave

When the employee leaves the Company to enter the military and returns to Turner after discharge (per USERRA guidelines), his or her time spent on military duty will be counted as Company service in determining the amount of accrued vacation to which he or she is entitled to.
