Summary:

Deluxe Corporation fired a Christian employee for refusing to comply with the company's policy regarding LGBTQ pronouns. Deluxe Corporation scored a 100 on the 2023 Corporate Equality Index (CEI) from the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), a political stakeholder group. By complying with the HRC’s controversial demands, Deluxe Corporation increases the risk of dividing employees, alienating customers and harming shareholders. The company covers transgender-related medical costs for its employees and their children and provides specific sexual orientation and gender identity-based benefits. It also uses sex and gender ideology criteria in employee recruitment, vendor selection, marketing, and philanthropic support. Deluxe Corporation forces employees to undergo multiple ideological trainings and uses its reputation, corporate funds, and political influence to support controversial sex and gender ideologies, organizations, and legislation. Deluxe Corporations' CEO signed the CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion pledge, and it signed an open letter in support of the Equality Act. For these reasons, Deluxe Corporation receives a High Risk rating.
