Employers are reporting an increase in the number of requests they receive related to benefits for same-sex partners. In fact, a recent survey of nontraditional family benefit coverage showed that 31 percent of responding organizations offer benefits to domestic partners. Of those, 31 percent offered benefits to same-sex partners only, 9 percent to opposite-sex partners only, and 60 percent to both.

The FMLA continues to be a complicated and confusing law for employers. In recent years, employers have found themselves coping with changes brought on by new regulations, law changes, and new interpretations. One more wrinkle concerns how the law relates to domestic partners. Last summer, the U.S. Department of Labor issued an administrator’s interpretation that opened up leave to employees who care for the child of their domestic partner.
Although the law has long been interpreted as allowing leave for employees standing “in loco parentis” to a child, the new interpretation adds another layer to the information employers need to keep them out of expensive legal trouble.
With an increase in the number of requests for domestic partner benefits, you need to have a clear understanding about how FLMA addresses such issues. With this interactive webinar, you'll learn:
