UCLA Williams Institute to hold panel on legal and business impacts of same-sex marriage

The Williams Institute at UCLA Law School will hold a panel with experts discussing "The Legal and Business Impact of Extending Marriage, Civil Unions, and Domestic Partnerships to Same-Sex Couples."  The event will be at 6 p.m. April 22 in the Korn Convocation Hall of UCLA's Anderson School of Management.  Attendees may RSVP here.

According to the news release, the panel will explore the impact on businesses and the economy of extending marriage to same-sex couples. Panelists will discuss the impact of the recognition of same-sex couples on employee productivity, recruitment, and retention; the costs of providing employee benefits; and the creation of personnel policies that comply with both state and federal law. In addition, they will present information on the impact to the economies of those states that have already extended the rights of marriage to same-sex couples.
