Yes, an employer can offer coverage to same-sex domestic partners and/or deny coverage for opposite sex domestic partners. You should ask your HR/Benefits representative for a copy of your plans eligibility rules, which will show who you may enroll and more importantly, when you can enroll them.

Are government workplaces exempt from workplace safety laws?

In the US, the basic law on workplace safety, the Occupational Safety and Health act of 1970, specifically excludes Federal employers and what we now call "public sector" employers (state and municipal governments, etc.) from coverage. However, if a given state has an OSHA-approved Health and Safety Program, it must cover the public sector employers of that state. By Presidential Order, all federal agencies, including the armed forces, must have programs that are at least as effective as OSHA. However, that still leaves employers in the Judicial and Legislative branches exempted from coverage. Congress has been under some pressure to provide equivalent coverage to its employees in recent years. Coverage in other countries is quite different and differs from country to country.

Can an employee drop their health insurance coverage when it isn't their open enrollment to join their spouses coverage at their spouses open enrollment?

You can but it is unwise because you need to know when you would be covered by the spouse's health plan. Some plans have 3 and 6 monthj waiting periods. So it is wise to keep your insurance, sign up on the spouse's insurance then later on after you have your new coverage in effect you could drop your employer's plan. Some employers however "require" their employees to be covered or are paying for the coverage. Check with your employer about that. Some employers will also refuse to cover you again if you lose your husband's coverage. If the marriage is not is good shape it is a foolish to drop your own coverage in case there is a divorce. Sorry to mention it but is true.

Can an employer stop paying employees medical premiums to cut costs?

The simple answer is yes, but it is more complicated than that. There is no current law that requires employers to provide health insurance coverage for their employees, so the employer could drop coverage at any time. (When the new Affordable Care Act becomes fully functional, everybody will have to buy insurance and employers who don't provide it will be fined....but many will still drop their employees and pay the fine because the fine will still be cheaper than paying high rates for coverage). But for now.....employers can drop coverage, but must still provide coverage for the month in which they drop the coverage if they try to cancel mid-month. This is because the premiums would have already been paid for that month and you should still get that coverage until that month's premiums have been used up. But the next month, they don't have to pay the premiums and your coverage would end. That being said, you might still be eligible to 'continue' that coverage under the group plan so long as you are willing to pay the full premium, which you might not be able to afford. You'll have to check with the insurer about the availability of 'conversion policies' that allow you to convert from a group plan to a non-group plan.
