Poll finds employers considering travel and lodging benefits for abortion services
Compared to our earlier surveys, taken before and immediately after the Dobbs decision, respondents to the June 30 poll were more likely to say they were planning or considering offering this benefit. However, differences in the mix of employers responding to the poll, particularly differences in size, can also affect the results. In an earlier survey, we found that the largest employers were the most likely to say they were considering a reimbursement benefit. The June 30 poll did not collect employer size data.
For a discussion of travel and lodging benefit considerations, please see our earlier post. Before making any abortion-related changes to your benefit plans, consult with your legal counsel to consider the impact of state abortion laws and regulations.
