Exxon Mobil

The latest news about Exxon Mobil, the oil company with the worst ranking from the Human Rights Campaign. Exxon Mobil is the only company ever to receive a negative score on the Human Rights Campaign's Corporate Equality Index, which rates companies based on their LGBT-inclusive policies and practices. Shareholders of the petroleum giant have continually rejected an antidiscrimination resolution that would have protected employees from being fired or harassed simply because they are LGBT. Prior to the merger with Exxon in 1999, Mobil had nondiscrimination protections in place for LGBT employees, but those were rescinded when Exxon took over.

Some 80% of shareholders voted against adding sexual orientation and gender identity to the company's anti-discrimination policy.
