Do firms actively revise their benefits to be more inclusive? I feel firms can be more inclusive and offer additional benefits like domestic partner benefits, family formation benefits (such as adoption, surrogacy, IVF, etc.), HIV/AIDS care coverage, and transgender-inclusive health care..I see a repeat of same vanilla coverage without much thought ,would like to hear from the group..

No on all of those. The closest one we have is the HIV/AIDS coverage, but it is not a special benefit…just normal care under the major medical.

I had a couple people ask about Domestic Partnership coverage this year. We currently do not allow this type of dependent relationship to be covered by our plans. When I asked both employees why they were interested, both advised they wanted the perks of being married but wanted to avoid the tax issues. Right then and there, I wrote off the idea of adding it. I’m not about to open a can of tax worms (many of our benefits are Pre-Tax) for a small group to dodge taxes. Our plans are complex enough now to administer.

Same sex spouses are allowed. We do classify them as DPS. They are Spouses, so long as the marriage is legally recognized.

Thanks for the details..very helpful,the issue sounds complex from a legal and tax perspective..hope things change for the better with less hassle,in the future for folks with genuine intent

Job offer extended but now some red flags… I was extended an offer today with a pay raise and great benefits. It’s in a field that interests me more but, now some red flags have come up. They voided my offer after asking for time off way in advance in December of this year & the pay that was discussed on the phone is different from my offer letter. I asked the recruiter to clarify and she said I must’ve not heard her correctly on the phone. I’m not having second thoughts… I was excited.

Anyone else find it INSANE that PTO does not count towards your billable hour requirement. If you take a week off (40 hours), you’re really not getting paid time off if you have to make up all of that billable time before the end of the year.

Am I missing something or is that just absurd?

Hello folks,

I have my review coming up and I was invited to bring comments about my job satisfaction/comments about the firm. We don’t have a clear maternity leave policy so I was thinking of saying that I’d like to see some clarity with respect to the maternity/family leave policy and I’d be happy to help craft it. Is that too risky? I have a pretty good relation with the two partners (both males) that I’d be speaking with. I hope this also expresses that I see my future at the firm.
