After last week’s Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, abortion laws across the country will be changing, which will create confusing challenges for employers.
What to watch out for: The new patchwork of state laws presents an exceptionally complicated and risky compliance burden, says NAM Deputy General Counsel for Litigation Erica Klenicki.
- In certain states, both civil and criminal liability are possible for those who “aid and abet” the performance of an abortion—including paying for or reimbursing the costs of an abortion through health insurance or otherwise.
