The Supreme Court in United States v. Windsor found unconstitutional the definition in DOMA that only persons of the opposite sex can be married for the purpose of federal law, and courts and administrative agencies recently have approved claims by transgender individuals.

In-house attorneys need to address these issues. Unfamiliarity with the law can expose a business to both legal liability and terrible press.
