Indeed Offers $10,000 Financial Aid For Trans Employees To Relocate To Friendlier States

Job search platform Indeed has launched a new $10,000 payment program for their transgender employees to help them relocate to safer areas in the United States. As per the Bloomberg report, Indeed Inc. announced the initiative to assist transgender employees back in July, it is only now being made public. The initiative will offer any trans workers or workers who have trans relatives in their immediate family, a payment of $10,000 to help them escape to states that still offer gender-affirming care and are generally more welcoming to those who might be seeking it. One employee, Sam Burger, told the publication that they made use of the initiative as soon as it was announced. Burger is one of the few employees who has taken part in the program so far. Other LGBTQ+ workers, particularly those living in Texas and Florida, have reported feeling uneasy about their future in those states. Indeed’s VP of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging, Misty Gaither explained that the company has been working with a business resource group for LGBTQ+ workers to figure out how best to respond to the growing number of states that are passing laws to restrict LGBTQ+ healthcare. Gaither said that any tax liability created by the payment, which is considered income, will be covered by Indeed Inc.
