The decision by SCOTUS to overturn Roe vs Wade has an effect on business especially on HR functions, regardless of your personal or religious opinions on the topic.
Tune in to this 90 minute webinar to hear about multiple federal employment laws that protect privacy, forbid discrimination based on pregnancy (including abortion) and/ or disability related to a pregnancy (including abortion), etc. This session will also review ideas for employee benefits related to pregnancies and reproduction (including IVF, miscarriages and abortion) as well as general employees assistance programs for dealing with physical or mental health. Avoiding the abortion topic is simply not an option for businesses. Why? Employees are attracted to and stay at companies who protect their rights and align with their values (which in itself means a company may need to take a stand one way or the other).
Additionally, this session will review the concepts of empathy as well as respectful and civil conversations in the workplace regarding this very emotional and potentially heated topic.
