    (ANSA) – ROME, June 25 – Google employees who wish to do so will be able to apply for a transfer to another state “without justification”. The decision, contained in an email to the Mountain View company staff, comes after the US Supreme Court ruling that it does not make abortion illegal in the United States, but leaves the decision to individual state governments. A number of states have suffered restrictions on abortion rights, including Louisiana, Missouri and Kentucky.

    Other states, including California, where Google is headquartered, have pledged to protect abortion rights within their borders.

    The ruling “is a profound change for the country that affects many of us, especially women. Everyone will respond in their own way, whether it is to want space and time to elaborate, talk, volunteer outside of work. Be aware of what colleagues can feel and, as always, treat each other with respect – reads the email published by The Verge website – Fairness is extraordinarily important to us as a company and we share concerns about the impact that this ruling will affect people’s health, life and career.

    We will continue to work to make information on reproductive health care accessible through our products and we will continue our work to protect user privacy. “” To support employees and their dependents – adds the communication – our plan of benefits and health insurance covers out-of-state medical procedures if they are not available where an employee lives and works. You can also request the transfer without justification “.

    Yesterday, other tech companies such as Apple and Meta, the parent company of Facebook and Instagram, pledged to pay employees travel, accommodation and procedures in case they have to travel to another state to undergo an abortion.

    “We support the rights of our employees to choose,” Apple said. (HANDLE).
