Three San Diego County companies have made
list of employers offering the best benefits for reservists and members of the National Guard.
The companies are Casas International of San Diego, an import/export brokerage; Homeland Solutions Inc. of Carlsbad, which specializes in telecommunications and information technology services; and Solar Turbines Inc. of San Diego, a unit of Caterpillar Inc. that makes industrial turbines.
To be named to the list, companies had to offer certain benefits to employees mobilized for active duty. They had to offer indefinite continuation of full civilian salary, or indefinite pay differential for employees whose military wages are less than their civilian wages, or a combination of the two.
In addition, the companies had to provide continuation of health benefits throughout the mobilization.
Often companies limit such benefits to a certain amount of time.
The account, in Navy Times’ March 28 issue, also noted that Casas International offers family support group briefings.
Data was taken from the Pentagon’s National Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, which received the data either from human resource offices or employees.
