Dublin To Offer City Workers Domestic Partner Benefits

Starting in January, Dublin city employees will be able to purchase health benefits for their same-sex domestic partners. The move follows recent court rulings regarding the federal Defense of Marriage Act. City officials estimate the costs at 5 to 7 thousand dollars for each worker. Dublin joins Columbus and other cities that offer domestic partner benefits.
