WEBINAR: Wednesday, October 22, 2014
12:30 PM - 1:30 PM (Central)

On October 6, 2014 the U.S. Supreme Court announced that it would not review seven Same-Sex Marriage cases, letting stand rulings from lower courts that clear the way for legal same-sex marriages in as many as thirty states. This complimentary webinar will focus on what managers, in-house counsel and human resources professionals need to know today in order to stay on top of these changing rules, including a list of Best Practices for employers.

In this webinar you will hear from:
  • Sean Gallagher and Stacy Carpenter, two shareholders at Polsinelli who were actively involved in the same-sex marriage cases before the Tenth Circuit and Sixth Circuit. Sean and Stacy will discuss the impact of the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to pass on this issue, the impact that decision has on the various states for which bans on same-sex marriage were ruled unconstitutional, and the interplay between the federal court rulings and the state court rulings.
  • Gillian Bidgood, a shareholder in the Labor and Employment practice group who will discuss the impact of same-sex marriages and other LGBT issues on employers, such as requests for accommodation, leave and discrimination laws.
  • Brian Johnston, a shareholder in the Employee Benefits practice group who will discuss the impact of same-sex marriages on employer provided benefits, tax implications, and enrollment rights.
