Explore:  DOMA Same-Sex Marriage

Proskauer’s Employee Benefits Practice Center’s DOMA Task Force, which is comprised of lawyers from our offices nationwide, regularly advises employers and other plan sponsors on the myriad benefits issues that arise in the context of domestic partner benefits. As more states legalize same-sex marriage and the U.S. Supreme Court is poised to issue a decision on whether or not the Defense of Marriage Act is Constitutional, the Task Force is analyzing the implications for employers and benefit plans, and is prepared to provide assistance in all aspects of benefit plan compliance when the Supreme Court issues its decision, which is expected in June. Keep an eye on our blog in the coming weeks as we comment on the various potential effects of the impending Supreme Court decision.
