React: Supreme Court's Gay Marriage Ruling
Courtney Leyes was quoted in The Daily News on June 26, 2015. The article “React: Supreme Court’s Gay Marriage Ruling” provided a roundup of local reaction to the landmark same-sex marriage ruling.
Courtney was quoted on her take to the ruling.
“Employers will be impacted by this decision and should re-examine policies pertaining to any benefits of employment extended to heterosexual married couples, including FMLA policies, to ensure that these policies apply equally to same-sex married couples. If anything, this decision is a precursor to what we will expect from the Supreme Court down the road – I think that in the near future, the Court will re-examine whether sexual orientation and preference are encompassed within the meaning of “sex” under Title VII.”
