Within days after the U.S. Supreme Court’s draft decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization leaked online in May, employers in states poised to outlaw abortion flooded the telephone lines and email inboxes of their outside counsel seeking help. Many wanted bespoke advice on messaging to employees, managing their reactions, and the viability of company-specific employee benefits offerings and workplace policies for when the Court would inevitably restore power to individual states to regulate abortion.

Employers also sought advice on more macro issues under federal law. For example, how would the Court’s decision affect the Family and Medical Leave Act rights of employees across the county, including those who work in states that ban abortion?

To help answer those questions, Law360 has published “expert analysis” from FisherBroyles employment attorney Eric B. Meyer entitled “FMLA May Still Cover Abortion-Related Leave In All 50 States.” You can read his article here if you have a Law360 subscription.
