Supreme Court Strikes Down State Laws Prohibiting Same-Sex Marriage

The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that same-sex couples may exercise the right to marry in all states. According to the opinion, the United States Constitution requires states to license a marriage between two people of the same sex, and to recognize a marriage between two people of the same sex when their marriage was lawfully licensed and performed out-of-state.

Federal, state, and local agencies are expected to issue guidance on how to proceed. IPS will be in touch with employers with questions regarding the impact of the ruling on the administration of employee benefits for same-sex couples.
