Shannon B. Schmoyer and Cristina C. Jennings presented on the topic, “DOMA and Emerging LGBT Issues in the Workplace,” at the SAHRMA Employment Law Conference.

The presentation focused on how the U.S. Supreme Court ruling last summer in U.S. v. Windsor dramatically changed the landscape for same-sex marriage and led to further developments for the rights of LGBT employees in the workplace.  This presentation explored its related impact on employee benefit plans, leave entitlements, and anti-discrimination policies.
