Salesforce offers assistance to its employees following the Texas restrictive abortion law that went into effect last week.

CNBC obtained a Friday slack message from the cloud computing company, which stated that it would help employees and their families relocate due to state reproductive laws.

The message stated that these are personal issues that have a direct impact on many people, especially women. It did not take a position on the law. "We acknowledge and respect the fact that everyone has deeply held and differing perspectives. Salesforce stands with all our women everywhere, as a company.

Salesforce will relocate you and your immediate family members if there are concerns about accessing reproductive healthcare in your state.

Salesforce claims that it has offices across the United States, including Dallas, according to its website.

After the US Supreme Court rejected its blocking, the Texas law went into effect on September 1. The law prohibits abortions after six weeks of gestation and does not permit exemptions for cases of rape, incest, or other serious medical conditions.

The ban also allows private citizens to enforce it by allowing them the right to sue abortion providers or anyone who assists someone in getting an abortion. Citizens would be rewarded for successful lawsuits.

Others have spoken out against the law and offered assistance to those impacted.

Uber and Lyft both offer to pay legal fees for drivers who are sued by the law for transporting an unborn baby to an abortion clinic.

Bumble, the company behind the dating app, said that it has established a Texas relief fund for women who want to have abortions.
