Private Employment Benefits
in the U.S., Canada, and Selected Other Countries
© September 29, 2011, Demian

Benefits vary widely, and are subject to change. Most, but not all, of these companies include same-sex as well as unmarried opposite-sex partners. All we know about the benefits are listed.

It is likely that there are even far more employers that offer benefits than we list. If you have information regarding additions or changes, please see below for the data we need.

Fifty-seven percent of Fortune 500 companies offer health care benefits to same-sex domestic partners, according to the Human Rights Campaign their an October 26, 2010 release.

The Federal COBRA law applies only to legally married, opposite-sex employees, not to employees with domestic partners. So it is up to an employer to continue benefits on the death of a partner, such as has been done in West Palm Beach, Broward County, Monroe County, Key West and Gainesville in Florida.

    [A former employee reported to us that their original policy was typical, in that the burden
    of proof was much higher for domestic partner couples than legally married couples to get
    corporate benefits. The proof being items not required of legal marriage, such as
    living together, or being financially responsible for each other debts. “When I was
    still at Adobe, we got them to change their requirements such that a statement of a
    registered domestic partnership, civil union, or US-based same sex marriage was all that was
    required — basically the same as for married opposite sex couples.”]

Canadian Private Employers
It has been reported that about a third of Canada’s large employers provide medical coverage to workers’ same-sex partners. Unlike the U.S. Internal Revenue Service, Revenue Canada treats same-sex couples the same as married opposite-sex couples by not taxing them on employer-paid spousal medical benefits.

The Canadian Supreme Court ruled that all federally regulated employers providing benefits to common law spouses must do likewise for same-sex couples. Also, in a ruling from an appeals court, privately administered pension funds may benefit same-sex partners without suffering tax penalties.

Other Countries’ Private Employers
Air New Zealand
    Introduced “registered nominees” in 1991. Employees can have anyone they want
    - without fear of recrimination - fully accessing their staff travel benefits. They
    can change that nominee to someone else every 12 months.
    (All full-time workers regardless of orientation or employer’s business)
    Quantas (2006)
    Quantas had refused to update a staff member’s marital
    status on his employee records because his legal Canadian marriage
    was not between opposite-sex partners. The airline relented, on
    May 26, 2006, after reading an email from former Chief Justice of
    the Family Court, Alastair Nicholson, endorsing the validity of
    man’s legal marriage. Wrote Nicholson to the employee:
    “There is nothing to stop a private employer permitting
    your husband to be described as your spouse on its
    documentation and I can see no legal impediment to it doing so.
    Indeed it would, in my view, be an appropriate step for it to take.”
Great Britain
    South West Trains extends spousal travel benefits to same-sex partners. Announced in
    Oct., 1999. (It is expected all the rest of the railway companies will follow suit)
    The House of Lords, on October 28, 1999, ruled that same-sex partners are to be considered a
    family, for the purposes of the Rent Act laws. This allows a partner to claim residency in
    the event of the official renter’s death.

    founded to foster economic growth and high levels of employment.

    [Once Ross Perot finished running for U.S. president, he returned to the business of

Salvation Army Western Corporation
    (Includes 13 states)
    [The Army announced, on Nov. 2, 2001, that it would extended benefits - which could take
    up to two years to be enacted - to any one adult in an employee’s household; that
    could be a domestic partner, spouse, roommate, or another family member. “This decision
    reflects our concern for the health of our employees and those closest to them, and is made
    on the basis of strong ethical and moral reasoning that reflects the dramatic changes in
    family structure in recent years,” said Col. Philip Needham, chief secretary for the
    Salvation Army’s Western Corporation.
    Ten days after the announcement to offer benefits, Salvation Army leaders distributed a
    written statement, on Nov. 12, that stated none of its United States divisions would be
    allowed to grant domestic partner benefits.
    It has been widely assumed that the new policy, which reverses their previous, anti-domestic
    partner posture, is a result of San Francisco’s requirement that companies that do
    businesses with the city offer domestic partner benefits. The Army had given up $3.5 million
    in city money that was used for drug rehabilitation services, a senior meal program, and a
    homeless shelter. The programs didn’t close, but were pared back. The Army has contracts
    in other cities with domestic partners laws and will likely face a cutoff of money if it
    doesn’t changed its policy.]
System Resources Corporation (SRC), Burlington, Massachusetts
    (Titan Industries, San Diego, California)
    [December 1997, removed medical and dental benefits them for “lack of interest” and
    alleged cost]

Benefits Denied, Then Re-Gained
    [Georgia Insurance Commissioner John Oxendine refused to give regulatory approval for
    insurance policies that included benefits for unmarried partners. Only companies large enough
    to at least partially self-insure, or were headquartered outside Georgia and thereby fell
    outside Oxendine’s authority were able to offer benefits.The city of Atlanta sued
    Oxendine for refusing to approve benefits for city employees (After their first domestic
    partnership benefits ordinance was declared unconstitutional, and their second one was
    approved). On September 22, 1999, the court ordered Oxendine to lift his statewide
    prohibition against insurance companies issuing policies covering domestic
