Todd Solomon and Brian Tiemann wrote this bylined article on the impact from two US Supreme Court decisions that now permit same-sex couples to marry in all 50 states and provide federal recognition for same-sex marriages. The rulings extend to same-sex spouses the rights and privileges previously extended only to opposite-sex spouses under federal law, and the authors recommended that “employers should review their benefit plans to ensure that spousal benefits are extended to same-sex spouses to the extent required by law.”
