70 Percent Of Employees Cannot Access Domestic Partner Benefits

New data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that only 30 percent of civilian workers (not counting employees of the federal government) have access to domestic partner benefits. Within that group, state and local employees had more access to health benefits (33 percent) than private sector employees (29 percent). Employees who worked full-time or had a union contract were more likely to be able to access domestic partner benefits.
