Employer Considerations in Light of Dobbs Decision

About the Event

In Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the U.S. Supreme Court delegated abortion to the control of individual states.

As a result, states vary widely on whether or not abortion is legal and to what extent. Employers and employees are now asking how this ruling impacts them and whether they need to do anything about it. Like the issue itself, the implications are complex. While the Supreme Court ruling impacts all employers, other federal and state laws may vary depending on the circumstances.

One of the major questions employers are asking is how their health plan is impacted by the Dobbs decision.

OneDigital’s compliance and benefits leaders are joined by guest speaker Carl Pilger, of counsel for Fisher Phillips, to provide an overview of the details around this decision and further guidance on what the ruling may mean for employer-sponsored health plans.
