After the U.S. Supreme Court struck down Roe v Wade, companies are coming forward to offer their employees with tools and resources to access reproductive healthcare.
The historic case, which gave people the right to an abortion in 1973, has led organizations to step forward in order to ensure that employees have full access to certain healthcare procedures.
Fiona Cicconi, chief people officer of Google, recently sent a company-wide email reminding staffers that they can “apply for relocation without justification.”
Managers in charge of relocation processes are “aware of the situation” when reviewing requests, which comes in tandem with Google’s shift to a hybrid work model.
Many states including Kentucky, Louisiana, and Missouri have trigger laws in place that instantly restricted abortion access after Roe v Wade was overturned.
“Equity is extraordinarily important to us as a company, and we share concerns about the impact this ruling will have on people’s health, lives, and careers. We will keep working to make information on reproductive healthcare accessible across our products and continue our work to protect user privacy,” the letter read.
