With the U.S. Supreme Court deciding not to take up a case to settle the same-sex marriage issue on the national level, employers need to understand how the Court’s decision affects their policies.
As it opened its new term on October 6, the Supreme Court declined to review one of seven cases from five states up for consideration.
