BellSouth to Offer Same-Sex Partner Benefits

The telecommunications company BellSouth joined the ranks of nearly 3,600 companies nationwide that offer health care benefits to gay employees’ partners. The expansion of benefits to include coverage for domestic partners is the most recent trend toward attracting employees and improving the diversity of work force. In one year, the three largest auto makers, the last of the five largest accounting firms, and 8 out of 10 of the largest airline companies all announced partner benefits.
