FedEx Adds Gender Identity to Non-Discrimination Policy

Posted By on Mon, Jul 13, 2009 at 4:17 PM

According to news website OneNewsNow.com, Memphis-based FedEx has added "gender identity" to its company-wide policy banning discrimination of employees. "Sexual orientation" was already included in the FedEx policy.

"FedEx has always had a strong policy regarding discrimination, and we felt the language was inclusive," said spokesperson Sandra Munoz. "But we were asked by some shareholders to be more specific."

Earlier this year, FedEx scored a 55 out of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign's Corporate Equality Index because it does not offer benefit for same-sex partners company-wide. Such benefits are only offered at FedEx Kinko's and the company's California locations, where it is required by law.
