Abortion bans and anti-LGBTQ laws are complicating business travel

The increasing prevalence of abortion bans and anti-LGBTQ laws in many states has complicated business travel for companies operating or sending employees across the country. These laws have raised moral and ethical concerns for businesses who do not wish to operate in states where their employees could have their rights violated. As such, many companies have begun to weigh the financial costs of traveling to states with such legislation against the ethical costs. In some cases, it has even led to boycotts of certain states and legislation. In addition, business travelers must be aware of their rights in anti-LGBTQ states, including where they can stay, what laws they must abide by, and what resources are available for their protection.
