Law360 Quotes Joanne Youn on DOMA Ruling Creating Employee Benefits Challenges for Employers

Date: 6/26/2013

Joanne C. Youn was interviewed by Law360 concerning the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling declaring Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional. The ruling may create challenges in employee benefits and will prompt employers to review their retirement and health plans. For the complete article, please visit Law360's website.

Excerpt taken from the article.

"The court has not ruled that same-sex marriage is a constitutional right, and there are still states that do not allow it," Joanne Youn of Caplin & Drysdale said. "Employers with multistate operations will need to determine what the law will now require and how this will affect their benefit plan administration."

"I think there are also intangibles in terms of employee relations that may inform those decisions, beyond what is required or what is not required," she said.
