Some Local Companies Still Lack In LGBT Workplace Inclusion



The Human Rights Campaign released its 2010 Corporate Equality Index last week, and several locally-based companies received less-than-perfect scores for their lack of LGBT inclusive policies.


AutoZone scored a 25 out of 100 points due to the company not having a gender identity policy or domestic partner benefits.

International Paper (IP) scored 65 out of 100 because it lacks a gender identity policy.

FedEx holds a score of 70 this year, an improvement from last year's 55. That's due to the company adding gender identity to its nondiscrimination policy earlier this year. The company still lacks domestic partner benefits, except where required by law in California and at FedEx Kinko's locations.

Finally, local law firm Baker, Donelson, Bearman, Caldwell & Berkowitz LLC scored a 70 due to the firm's lack of a gender identity policy.
