Freedom to Work files suit against oil company I drive miles out of way to avoid

by Jeremy Hooper

The subject, Exxon, is a reliably low-ranking company on the gay rights spectrum, scoring a negative twenty-five (!) on the Human Rights Campaign's latest Corporate Equality Index. The lawsuit, however is a first of its kind.

Basically, Freedom To Work has filed suit with Illinois' Department of Human Rights, claiming that the oil giant discriminates against gay applicants. The LGBT rights org. submitted two fictional applications and claim that the less-qualified-but-more-hetero applicant was offered an interview while the more-qualified-but-more-'mo applicant was shut out.
