Three Colorado companies earn flawless scores on LGBTQ-inclusive workplace report

Three Colorado companies earn flawless scores on LGBTQ-inclusive workplace report”

"Walmart has previously received high marks on the CEI, but recent determinations by the EEOC about discrimination are cause for concern", Deena Fidas, director of the Human Rights Campaign's workplace equality program, said in an emailed statement.

Walmart received a flawless 100 in HRC's new 2018 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), but the LGBT advocacy group is retracting that score amid employee complaints of harassment and discrimination. Live Nation now joins the ranks of 609 major US businesses out of the 947, that received a ideal score. "From testifying at the State Houses in MA and New Hampshire, to helping to create a new LGBTQ Chamber of Commerce in MA, to advocating for the continued protection of rights for people who are Transgender, Eastern fully embraces and supports our LGBTQ colleagues and community and we remain deeply committed to ensuring our organization is welcoming and inclusive to all".

Ingalls Shipbuilding and its parent company, Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII) were ranked among the nation's best for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) workplace equality, the company announced this week.

The 2018 CEI rated businesses on several criteria including domestic partner benefits, transgender-inclusive health care benefits, and policies and practices including non-discrimination workplace protections.

In the latest Corporate Equality Index, a record-breaking 609 businesses, spanning almost all industries, earned a top score of 100 percent and the distinction of "Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality".

Multiple investigations by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission "pointed to significant enforcement gaps in Wal-Mart's non-discrimination policy, specifically with regards to sex and gender identity", HRC noted in its 2018 CEI report. "While we respect the HRC's work, we are confident in Walmart's leading practices that support our LGBTQ communities and look forward to further educating them on our policies". Eastern provides exceptional access to fairly priced banking, investment and insurance products and services for consumers and businesses of all sizes.

More than 600 major businesses received ideal scores in the 2018 CEI report, include Apple, Royal Caribbean, Viacom, Amazon and American Airlines.
