California county mandates DP benefits for city contractors

BY 

 

The San Mateo, Calif., County board of supervisors voted unanimously Wednesday to approve an ordinance requiring large county contractors to provide domestic-partner benefits to their employees, the Bay City News Service reports. The ordinance must be approved a second time by the board before becoming law. A similar law is already in effect in San Francisco. The county ordinance would require firms with city contracts of more than $5,000 to offer domestic-partner benefits to their workers. To qualify, couples must have their partnerships registered with the state.
