Atlanta-based UPS announced it will extend health care benefits to the civil-union partners of hourly employees in New Jersey, saying it has “received clear guidance that at least in New Jersey, the state truly views civil-union partners as married,” a company spokesman said.
UPS has offered same-sex benefits to nonunion employees nationwide since 2004. The company’s bargaining agreement with the Teamsters requires that it consider the various definitions of “spouse” on a state-by-state basis.
Final tip: As more and more states move toward acknowledging and legalizing same-sex unions, be prepared to review your benefits packages if you operate in multiple jurisdictions.
