In order for the City to do business with you, you must provide equal benefits and equal access to benefits to registered domestic partners of employees if you offer benefits to spouses. Documentation of your benefits policies (if applicable) must be provided. You must complete this form even if you do not have any employees. Please keep in mind that the city does not require you to provide benefits, only that you offer equal benefits.
- Answers to Question 1A and B, should be “yes.”
- If Question 2A is “yes,” 2B should also be “yes.” If you don’t offer benefits, say “no” to Question 2A and 2B.
- If you say “yes” on Question 2C for spouses, you must also say “yes” for domestic partners. Saying “yes” means you’ll need to submit forms that document your claim.
- If you have no employees, you would say “yes” to Question 1, “no” to Question 2, and leave Question 2C blank.
