At OmbuLabs, we value and respect our teammates and we are committed to protecting their mental health, physical health, and well-being.
On Friday June 24th, the Supreme Court announced a decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, removing the federal right to an abortion and leaving the decision up to each state.
We at OmbuLabs are prepared to ensure that all of our teammates have consistent and safe access to the benefits we provide, regardless of the state in which they live.
In response to the Supreme Court’s ruling, we are announcing that if one of our teammates lives in a state which restricts access to abortion, OmbuLabs will provide up to $5,000 in travel expense reimbursement to travel to the nearest location where that care is legally available. Considering we have teammates who live in countries where there is no safe access to an abortion, this benefit will be available to them as well.
This benefit will be provided to any teammate, spouse or dependent along with one support person.
We recognize people feel passionately about this topic -- and that there are teammates and clients who will not agree with this decision. However, we also recognize that decisions involving health and families are deeply personal, private, and made with thoughtful consideration. We are making this decision so our teammates can access the same health care options, regardless of where they live, and choose what is best for them.
Years from now, when we look back we want to make sure that we were on the right side of history. This statement is inspired by Dick’s Sporting Goods recent statement. We join them and many other companies in supporting our teammates no matter where they live.
