Survey Shows Significant Increase in Corporate Equality Policies for LGBTQ Workers

The 2018 Corporate Equality Index released by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation found a significant increase in the number of major U.S. companies establishing policies and practices to protect lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) workers.  These policies and practices include nondiscrimination policies, employment benefits, demonstrated organization competency and accountability concerning LGBTQ diversity and inclusion, public commitment to LGBTQ equality, and responsible citizenship.  More information is available here: 2018 Corporate Equality Index

Many of these policies and procedures are often found in a company’s employee handbook, which should be reviewed at least annually for any size company.
