The Financial Times (FT) is reporting that Big Pharma company Eli Lilly has had employees request transfers from its Indiana operations after that state approved a bill to ban most abortions there.
An Indiana judge has temporarily halted the ban for now. However, in an interview with FT, CEO David Ricks said the new restrictions had created challenges in getting people to come to work in Indiana, and that if Eli Lilly wanted to attract and retain the best staff, it had to grow in other locations.
Eli Lilly has roughly 10,000 employees in Indiana. It has been headquartered in Indianapolis for more than 145 years.
The company did not provide FT with details on how many workers had asked for transfers.
