Ahead of the Statutory Curve - Big Business vs. Sexual Orientation Bias

Although there is no federal prohibition against discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, 357 of the Fortune 500 companies now have such prohibitions in their equal employment policies according to The Journal News story, Gay workers find greater gains in workplace. Some will see this as support for extending the prohibition to all employers of a certain size, while others will say it shows Congressional action is not needed. Regardless, my guess is that at some point, we will have such legislation.
