Nissan offers benefits to same-sex couples


Nissan is offering domestic partner coverage coverage to same-sex couples. While the company didn’t make an official announcement, the information was included in employee benefit packages that were mailed out this past week.

The policy includes more than 8,900 workers at manufacturing plants in Smyrna and Dechard, as well as corporate employees. The company has decided to extend the coverage it once offered employees at the North America headquarters in California. Recently those headquarters moved to the mid-state.

Nissan said they wanted to offer one, standard plan for all employees.
