Corporations to help abortion travel

On the heels of the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, several big-name companies such as Microsoft, Nike and Tesla have announced that they plan to assist employees who live in places where abortion is restricted to travel out-of-state to undergo the procedure.

But how that might actually work and what pitfalls employers and employees might encounter remains to be seen.

"I think a lot of employers in reaction to the Dobbs decision are making these very public statements that they're going to offer abortion travel benefits," says Bethany Corbin, senior counsel at Nixon Gwilt Law, a firm that specializes in healthcare law.

"A lot of them have not operationalized that yet," Corbin says. "They're still working through how this actually works in practice."
