Implications of U.S. Supreme Court’s Announcement of Constitutional Protections for Same Sex Marriage – Employment Law and Otherwise – Part Two

By now, most Americans have heard that the U.S. Supreme Court has announced constitutional protections for same sex marriage.  This means that same sex marriage is legal and protected in all fifty states.  But, the resolution of the marriage issue raises a host of new issues.  This article addresses just a handful of those issues.  Part One addressed issues outside of employment law.  This Part Two addresses some of the issues arising under employment law.

This list is not intended to be all-inclusive.  Many additional employment-related issues will come to light as employers and employees adjust to the Supreme Court’s decision.

The analysis set forth in this article is provided for general understanding only and should not be considered legal advice.  Counsel should be consulted regarding any specific employment issues.
