Can my employer pay more for a co-workers health insurance, who is married, than for my health insurance as a single person? My employer pays 100% of my health insurance, but they also pay 100% of my co-workers' family health insurance policy (which covers my co-worker, his spouse and his children). We have the same job, with the same job title and responsibilities. But I believe that since family policies are likely 3-5 times more expensive than a single policy my co-worker is receiving a larger dollar benefit based on the cost of his family policy vs my single policy. Is this legal, or is it a discriminatory benefits policy based on marital or family status and not a bona fide job-related classification?
