Today, we are reaffirming the commitment we made two years ago to continue covering birth control access for our employees, regardless of whether it is required by the government.
The ability to decide if and when to have children is an important contributor to the gains that women have made in the workplace – and we are wholly invested in furthering those strides, not rolling them back.
Full and unfettered access to contraception is good for women, it’s good for the businesses that employ them, and for the families that they support.
Levi Strauss & Co. has a long history of standing up for equality, civil rights and social justice in the communities where we work — and the welfare of our own employees is no exception. Simply put, we will continue offering birth control coverage through our company health plan benefits – and we hope that other businesses will join us in ensuring continued access to a right as fundamental as family planning.
