The Post-DOMA Era: The Great News for Companies and Employees!
Thursday, March 27, 2014 - 12 pm Pacific Time
1 pm Mountain | 2 pm Central | 3 pm Eastern
Since 1996, progressive companies have tried to mitigate the impact of Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in search of benefits equality for LGBT families. The Supreme Court took the first steps to end DOMA but new challenges now face LGBT employees and companies. Our panel will look at the impact DOMA has had, what companies have been doing and what changes are on the horizon. Building on that foundation, we will look at the next steps and questions on how businesses are being impacted with the patchwork of decisions that exist today and what are the next steps. Panelists will share their expertise and their insights but also bring your questions so we can expand the discussion on next steps!
