The Minnesota Marriage Equality Bill, HF 1054, was signed into law by Governor Mark Dayton on May 14, 2013. Effective August 1, 2013, Minnesota will allow individuals of the same sex to marry.
Employers need to review their policies relating to employee health and retirement benefits to reflect this change. What changes are allowed or required will differ based on whether the benefit is governed by state or federal law.
