Salesforce told thousands of employees that it would help them relocate out of Texas if they were concerned about the ability to access reproductive care.
The pledge comes after Texas’ Senate Bill 8 went into effect earlier this month, significantly restricting access to abortions.
“These are incredibly personal issues that directly impact many of us — especially women,” Salesforce told employees in a Slack message seen by CNBC.
“We recognize and respect that we all have deeply held and different perspectives. As a company, we stand with all of our women at Salesforce and everywhere.”
The post added: “With that being said, if you have concerns about access to reproductive healthcare in your state, Salesforce will help relocate you and members of your immediate family.”
Following CNBC's report, CEO Marc Benioff tweeted “Ohana if you want to move we’ll help you exit TX. Your choice.” Ohana is a Hawaiian term that means extended family.
The Texas law bans abortion after six weeks, before most people realize they are pregnant. It also allows anyone to sue someone else for “aiding and abetting” abortions after six weeks.
