Lisa M. Gomez speaks about the ability of private employers to assert religious or moral objections to providing certain employee benefits in an American Bar Association Joint Committee on Employee Benefits Webinar

On July 12, 2018, Lisa M. Gomez will be a featured panelist in an American Bar Association Joint Committee on Employee Benefits webinar titled MASTERPIECE CAKE SHOP:  INTERSECTION BETWEEN RELIGIOUS AND MORAL LIBERTY AND BENEFITS.  The panel will review current court decisions and regulations permitting private employers to assert religious or moral objections to providing certain employee benefits, and will review how this trend may affect the provision of medical benefits for transgender employees, legacy pre-Windsor issues for same-sex spouses in pension plans, coverage for same-sex spouses in health plans, fertility benefits for employees in same-sex relationships, and medical marijuana.  More information can be found here.
