Maker hailed for supporting corporate equality.

by on Nov.15, 2012

Chrysler has earned kudos for its support of workplace equality in a new study.

Chrysler Group was one of the relatively small number of companies in the U.S. to achieve a perfect score in the 2013 Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Annual Corporate Equality Index.

The Index rates major employers based on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender workplace policies and benefits, defining the best-in-class practices for LGBT inclusion in the workplace. Chrysler Group has achieved a perfect score seven times since the index was established in 2002

According to a report released by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), Chrysler Group was one of 252 leading employers to achieve a perfect score of 100 percent on HRC’s 2013 Corporate Equality Index (CEI). A perfect score indicates a company provides full parity for domestic partner benefits, not only in basic medical coverage, but in dependent care, retirement and other benefits that affect families’ financial and medical well-being. Chrysler Group’s 100 percent rating also signifies coverage for transgender individuals for medically necessary care — a community the HRC notes has historically been overlooked.
