Amazon to Reimburse US Employees for Health-Related Travel Costs

“Amazon will reimburse employees in the U.S. who are forced to travel over 100 miles to obtain an abortion and other medical treatments, according to a new report from Reuters. The reimbursement announcement came via email to employees at the company on Monday, according to Reuters, and a Politico story late Monday about how the U.S. Supreme Court plans to overturn Roe v. Wade appears to have been entirely coincidental. Amazon will reportedly reimburse employees for up to $4,000 in travel expenses for any medical treatments that can’t be obtained within 100 miles of the employee’s home, including reproductive health care treatments like abortions.” (05/03/22)
