Navigating the Post-Roe World: A Special Session with Employee Benefits and Employment Experts from Epstein Becker Green

This is a NEBGH Members only event. If you are interested in attending and not a member, please contact Elizabeth Merrill.

The U.S. Supreme Court’s opinion on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization opens a pandora’s box of questions and challenges for employers.

How should employers address access for employees to reproductive healthcare that is restricted in the state where the employees reside?

What should employers consider in offering travel benefits for healthcare services prohibited by state law?

What employment-related concerns should employers be aware of in light of the Dobbs decision?

These are only a few of the questions and challenges employers face in a post-Roe World.
