"Equal treatment is sound business," said HRC's Winnie Stachelberg.

WASHINGTON - The Human Rights Campaign today lauded Toys "R" Us for agreeing to add language to its equal opportunity employment policy prohibiting discrimination based on gender identity. It appears likely that the company, ranked 171 in the Fortune 500, will also begin offering domestic partner benefits and including sexual orientation and gender identity issues in their diversity training. If implemented, the company would earn an 86 on HRC's Corporate Equality Index -- a tool measuring how equitably companies are treating their gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender employees, consumers and investors.
