Corprate Bias Ratings

Risk Level:

Rating - Danger
High Risk

Indeed has denied business to a religious nonprofit, despite allowing other religious nonprofits on the platform, due to differences in belief. Indeed also canceled its advertising relationship with Tucker Carlson over his stance on illegal immigration. The company vets vendors according to LGBTQ policies and does not provide its employees with protections against viewpoint discrimination. The company covers the cost of "medically necessary transition-related care" for its employees and their children. Indeed has used corporate funds to cover employees' abortion-related travel expenses. Indeed promotes the proliferation of ESG. For these reasons, Indeed receives a High Risk rating.

Criteria
Risk Level
Rationale
Corporate Weaponization
Criteria

Has denied service to customers, suppliers, or vendors due to their political views or religious beliefs OR corporately boycotts, divests, or sanctions regions, people groups, or industries.

Risk Level
Rationale

Indeed denied service to Answers in Genesis, a faith-based nonprofit, due to religious requirements the nonprofit stated for its potential employees (1). Answers in Genesis found that Indeed allowed multiple other companies and organizations, including Planned Parenthood and other religious organizations, to remain on the platform despite requiring a specific religious or political commitment. Indeed received a score of 100 on the Corporate Equality Index from the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) (2). Among other requirements, this means the company has pledged to vet vendors for LGBTQ policies. In 2018, Indeed pulled all advertising from Tucker Carlson’s time block on Fox News due to his opinions on immigration (3).
