(KSL News) -- Salt Lake City employees have been encouraged to start enrolling domestic partners for health benefits programs, even though the system isn't official yet.

Mayor Rocky Anderson signed an executive order in September providing the benefits. But it's still unclear the order is legal.

The city's insurance provider says it won't provide the benefits, until a judge says it's legal to do so.

However, the city's human resources department told employees yesterday, they must enroll by the end of the month.

City officials say they want people to start enrolling now, so they're prepared when the court makes a decision.
