Bausch & Lomb Scores 100 on Human Rights Campaign Index
The Human Rights Campaign unveiled its fourth annual report card on Corporate America's treatment of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender employees. The Corporate Equality Index rates Fortune 500 and other major companies on a scale from zero to 100 percent on seven key indicators of fair treatment for GLBT employees. Indicators include policies prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity as well as equal health care benefits. "With 101 companies scoring 100 percent, millions of Americans now have protection they would have only dreamed of a few years ago," said Daryl Herrschaft, director of the Human Rights Campaign Foundation's Workplace Project and lead author of the report.
