Google Allows Relocations for Employees Affected by Roe V. Wade Decision – Deadline

ADVERTISEMENT

Hello everyone,

This morning, the US Supreme Court ruled in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization overturning Roe v. Wade.

This is a profound change for the country that deeply affects so many of us, especially women. Everyone will react in their own way, whether that’s wanting space and time to process, speak up, volunteer outside of work, not wanting to talk about it at all, or something completely different. Be aware of what many of your colleagues are feeling and, as always, treat each other with respect.

Equity is extremely important to us as a company, and we share our concerns about the impact this ruling will have on people’s health, lives and careers. We will continue to work to make reproductive health information accessible across all of our products and continue our work to protect user privacy.

To support Googlers and their families, our US benefits plan and health insurance cover out-of-state medical procedures that are not available where an employee lives and works. Googlers can also request a move without justification, and those overseeing this process will be aware of the situation. If you need extra support, connect 1:1 with a People Consultant.

Over the next few days, we’ll be hosting support sessions for Googlers in the US. These will be posted on Googler News.

Don’t hesitate to lean on your Google community in the coming days and take care of yourself and each other.
