In recent years, the LGBT community has made significant progress in gaining rights, but they still lack protection in the workplace. LGBT workers are not eligible for leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act, leaving them unable to care for a sick family member or spend time with a new baby, says Los Angeles employment lawyer Eric Grover. It is important that NY and every state across the U.S. adopt laws that would give equality to all workers, regardless of their sexual orientation.

In the year that has passed since Governor Andrew Cuomo signed into law the New York Marriage Equality Act, thousands of same-sex couples have vowed to take each other “in sickness and in health.” Yet because of discriminatory and inadequate federal laws that deny LGBT spouses the protections guaranteed to their heterosexual counterparts, many LGBT couples are experiencing setbacks as they strive to honor their marriage vows.
