Same-sex partner benefits
| Rob Nance,
By Rob Nance, Publisher - Extending benefits to same-sex partners of employees is certainly a hot topic here in America. Twenty-six years ago, the Village Voice, a New York newspaper, became the first U.S. employer to do so. Now, more than 80 percent of Fortune 500 companies provide such benefits. Interestingly, among the 10 largest U.S. companies, only ExxonMobil and Wal-Mart do not provide domestic-partner benefits.
