Earlier this month, the Human Rights Campaign released its annual Corporate Equality Index, ranking hundreds of America's largest companies based on treatment of LGBT employees.

Memphis-based AutoZone and Tennessee-based Cracker Barrel both scored in the bottom 10. AutoZone placed ninth-worst for not prohibiting discrimination based on gender identity or expression and for not providing same-sex partners with health coverage.

Cracker Barrel received the third lowest corporate equality score. The company doesn't prohibit discrimination based on gender, provide partner benefits, or require diversity training that encompasses sexual orientation.
