Today, Symantec signed on to support the Equality Act, a comprehensive federal LGBT non-discrimination legislation, that would provide the same basic protections to LGBT people as are provided to other protected groups under federal law. The landmark bill introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives last week helps protect against discrimination of LGBT people by expanding civil rights protections around hiring and firing. Although marriage equality recently became the law of the land, there are still more than 30 states where it’s legal to be fired for being LGBT. This bill is critical to ensuring everyone enjoys the same civil rights regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.

At Symantec, we are proud to support full and equal rights for the LGBT community. We believe having a diversity of perspectives ensures we make better business decisions and the products and services we offer meet the needs of the broad spectrum of people we serve worldwide, which is why we couldn’t be more proud to support the Equality Act.
