Abstract:
This bulletin discusses the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's final rule permitting employers to coordinate their retiree health benefit plans with eligibility for Medicare. Published on December 26, 2007, the rule answers, at least for now, a difficult question: Is it unlawful age discrimination to reduce a retiree's health benefits when the retiree becomes eligible for Medicare? The answer is no. As issued in its final form, the rule permits employers to offer retiree health benefits that may change, be reduced, or even be eliminated when a participant becomes eligible for Medicare. The rule is set out in the bulletin.

Abstract:
On May 8, 2012, North Carolina voters approved an amendment to the North Carolina Constitution making marriage between a man and a woman the only \"domestic\" union that can receive legal recognition in the state. Some units of government in North Carolina have, before the adoption of Amendment One, extended some kinds of employee benefits - notably health insurance - to unmarried domestic partners. The question arises with the adoption of Amendment One whether this extension of benefits by public employers is now unlawful. This bulletin looks at law the courts will have to apply to determine whether Amendment One extends to employee benefit plans.
