Boufides said the presentation focused on the employment law implications of the recent same-sex marriage ruling by the Supreme Court. He said the discussion also would touch on touch on such matters as “family medical leave for same-sex couples, discrimination, lawsuits on the basis of sexual orientation and/or being in a same-sex marriage, as well as employee benefits for same-sex couples and what is required now and what isn’t required.”
