Abstract

An essay is presented on spousal and domestic partner employee benefits in the U.S. as of November 2012, focusing on an examination of differences between the benefits afforded to same-sex and opposite-sex couples. In Arizona, an administrative regulation was passed in 2008 to provide extended health benefits to the domestic partners of Arizona state employees. Several legal cases are addressed, including the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona case Collins v. Brewer.
