On June 26, the U.S. Supreme Court issued its much anticipated decision in Obergefell v. Hodges, declaring that the fundamental right to marriage, which is protected by the Fourteenth Amendment, applies with equal force to same-sex couples. The Obergefell opinion makes it clear that in the eyes of the law, there is no longer a distinction between “marriage” and “same-sex marriage.” Thus, employers, particularly in those states that previously banned same-sex marriages, should review their policies, practices and benefit plans.
