CLE - 12:30 to 1:30 pm
Since 2003, New Mexico’s Human Rights Act has included sexual orientation as a protected status, yet it has only been months since same-sex marriage was legally recognized in New Mexico. Since the Supreme Court’s ruling on DOMA, it seems like every other week we hear about new guidelines by Federal agencies about same-sex marriages and federal benefits. How do we keep track of it all? This program will answer questions you may have about employment issues, including same-sex benefits, tax issues and some not-so-obvious areas that are affected. We will discuss topics such as what it means to extend benefits coverage to same-sex couples, reviewing FMLA and other policies, and handling changes in status. We will also provide you with the most up-to-date information from the Department of Labor and IRS about the issue and how it affects New Mexico employers, including you.
