High Court Decides Same-Sex Marriage Issue (PDF)
BuckLink to more items from this source
June 28, 2015
"Public sector employers, such as state and local governments, will be required to recognize same-sex spouses and treat them the same as opposite-sex spouses if spousal benefits are offered. Private employers will not be required to recognize same-sex spouses, nor provide equal treatment, but could face litigation alleging sex discrimination.... [To] the extent state insurance law requires coverage of same-sex spouses when spousal coverage is offered, a plan will not be able to purchase insured coverage that excludes same-sex spouses.... For public sector employers, the ruling will require that plans extend to same-sex spouses the same spousal protection under their retirement plans as they extend to opposite sex spouses."
