This panel will discuss two issues surrounding an employer’s rights and responsibilities after Dobbs. The first presentation will discuss an employer’s right under ERISA to assist its employees in obtaining a legal abortion after Dobbs. The second presentation will focus on the attempt of many employers to use the ever-expanding protections for religiously affiliated employers (including for-profit employers) to escape liability under our employment discrimination laws.

  • William Reynolds, Employer-Sponsored Plans to Assist Employees in Obtaining an Abortion and ERISA
  • Marcia McCormick, Dobbs and Exit in Antidiscrimination Law
