- REGULATORY CHANGES: REPEAL OF THE DEFENSE OF MARRIAGE ACT (DOMA)
On June 26, 2013, the Supreme Court struck down as unconstitutional Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act (“DOMA”), which provided that only opposite-sex marriages would be recognized as valid for federal law purposes. As a result, individuals who are spouses in a same-sex marriage that is recognized under applicable state law are now considered to be married when applying federal statutes and regulations that refer to or involve marital status. The Institution, like the majority of employers, is reviewing the ruling and awaiting final guidance from the Federal government before taking any action to ensure appropriate administration and full compliance with the new regulations.
