Debriefing the Dobbs Decision: Unpacking What Employers Face in the Aftermath of the Overturning of Roe v. Wade

Events / February 28, 2023

Although it did not deal directly with any state or federal employment laws, the 2022 recent Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade raises a number of legal questions for every employer as states remain divided on the legality of abortion and companies look for guidance on what types of benefits, accommodations and support they can legally provide their employees. From Employee Retirement Income Security Act preemption issues, Family and Medical Leave Act implications, Title VII religious discrimination allegations and National Labor Relations Board-protected activities to state and local whistleblower, discrimination and criminal statutes, the Dobbs decision has impacted and will continue to impact nearly all areas of employment law. This session will feature a panel of white collar defense, employment, employee benefits and privacy professionals who will address the difficult issues employers now face in the wake of the Dobbs decision.
