VII. Conclusion.

Understandably, an employee's journey in pursuing domestic partnership benefits may be a difficult one. Yet, these difficulties should not deter employees from trying to achieve basic fairness in the workplace. In the past ten years, there have been large strides in the recognition of domestic partnership benefits by government entities, and public and private companies. However, even as we enter the 21st century, inequity and discrimination still exist in the workplace and remain to be conquered. Effective organizing and persistence will help employers realize that domestic partnership benefits are both inexpensive and in the best interest of both employer and employee.
