Amendment One Not Expected To Affect Same-Sex Partner Benefits At Duke
Durham, NC - Duke officials announced that the approval of Amendment One by North Carolina voters yesterday is not expected to impact Duke's long-standing policy to extend same-sex partner benefits to faculty and staff.
"Duke was one of the first employers to make benefits available to same sex partners in 1994 as a way to be inclusive and supportive of the needs of all faculty and staff, and this support will continue," said Kyle Cavanaugh, vice president of administration at Duke.
Same-sex couples are and will continue to be eligible to participate in the following benefits:
- Medical, dental, and vision benefits
- Reimbursement accounts
- Financial protection
- Educational assistance (tuition grant)
- Retirement plans
- Survivor benefits
