Insurance

Risk Level:

Rating - Danger
High Risk

Summary:

American International Group (AIG) canceled the insurance policy of former MLB player Curt Schilling after his outspoken support of former President Donald Trump. This termination happened despite AIG's discrimination policy that protects employees from political discrimination, indicating that this policy does not extend to customers. AIG does not use its funds to advance ideological groups hostile to freedom of expression, but it does speak out on political issues corporately, such as the North Carolina bathroom bill. It also gives PAC dollars to the Equality PAC. For these reasons, AIG receives a "High Risk" rating.
