This year’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling legalized same-sex marriage nationwide, which means that you may need to review your benefits and other policies to be sure they comply with current laws and regulations. For example, spousal benefits, such as health insurance coverage, generally must be extended to same-sex couples. In addition, federal regulations now require that
employees in same-sex marriages must also be given leave to care for a spouse under the Family Medical Leave Act.
These are just a few of the issues you should consider in light of the ruling. Please contact our office for advice on issues related to same-sex marriage, employee policies or benefits¬¬ — or with any other business concerns.
