Disney sent an internal memo to employees Friday assuring them it will help pay for pregnancy-related care if they have to travel to a different state.
The memo was signed by Paul Richardson, chief human resources officer, and Pascale Thomas, vice president of enterprise benefits and well- being.
Corporations and politicians reacted to the abortion decision.
Richardson and Thomas said in the memo that their company remains committed to removing barriers and providing comprehensive access to quality and affordable care for all of their employees and cast members.
Cancer treatments, transplants, rare disease treatment and family planning are covered in this travel benefit.
Disney CEO Bob Chapek came under fire for not condemning Florida's "Don't Say Gay" legislation. That led to an about-face in which Disney publicly avowed to help repeal the law. The bungled attempt at communication resulted in the departure of Disney's head of communications.
Disney has not commented on the Supreme Court's decision.
The full note on the ruling can be found here.
Some of you may have concerns about what the Supreme Court ruling will mean for you and your family, as medical and family planning decisions are very personal.
We are committed to removing barriers and providing comprehensive access to quality and affordable care for all of our employees, cast members and their families, regardless of where they live. We have processes in place so that if an employee can't get care in one location, they can get it in another location for less money. Cancer treatments, transplants, rare disease treatment and family planning are covered by this travel benefit.
As an eligible employee of The Walt Disney Company, we want to remind you of the range of medical coverage options, as well as the options for your dependents. We encourage you to speak to your medical carrier if you have questions about your coverage. You can reach out to your HR representative if you want to learn more about the company's benefits.
The health, safety and well-being of our team members and their families are Disney's top priority.
