Relationship Discrimination? What’s Fair?

by Beverly A. Pekala on October 19, 2011

Yesterday’s posting demonstrated that some employers are treating employees differently when it comes to health insurance benefits, which may or may not be provided because of the employee’s relationship status.

So the big question is, what’s fair?  Should employers treat all employees equally when it comes to health insurance benefits?

Most people automatically answer “of course.” But what about employees who have no children or spouse/partner? Is it fair that employers provide health insurance benefits for children, spouses, or partners of  employees, while failing to make the same financial contribution to employees who don’t have kids or spouses/partners?

What’s fair??
