Roe v. Wade

Employer Considerations

 Employee BenefitsROe v. Wade

Friday, June 24, 2022, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) issued a decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization that overturns the high court’s previous decisions on Roe v. Wade (1973) and Planned Parenthood v. Casey (1992).

There is no longer a federal constitutional right to access abortion services, meaning it’s up to each State to determine whether and to what extent access to abortion services is legal.

We recognize there are employee relations considerations. We encourage employers to discuss how to address employee communications with HR/employment law counsel.  It may also be beneficial to determine how an employee assistance program (EAP) or other benefit offering may assist employees with reactions regarding this Supreme Court decision.
