Summary:

Macy's has fired multiple employees over disputes involving their religious beliefs and faced lawsuits for these terminations. The company allegedly dropped former presidential candidate Donald Trump as a vendor in 2015. Macy’s 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, Macy's increases the risk of dividing employees, alienating customers and harming shareholders. It also uses sex and gender ideology criteria in employee recruitment, vendor selection, marketing, and philanthropic support. Macy's 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. Macy's provides a benefits package for employees which covers travel/lodging costs for an abortion and transgender medical procedures for covered employees and dependents, including children. The company does not provide viewpoint protections for its employees. America First Legal filed a letter with the EEOC requesting a civil rights investigation into Macy's over discriminatory practices in hiring. Macy's raised $5 million for The Trevor Project. The company's CEO is a signatory of the Business Roundtable's 2019 Statement on the Purpose of Corporation, which promotes stakeholder capitalism. Macy's supports the Equality Act and has opposed anti-LGBTQ legislation. The company also signed the Fifteen Percent Pledge and "committed to dedicate 15% of their shelf space to Black-owned brands". Macy's opposed various state and local legislation intended to protect parental rights, girls’ sports, bathroom facilities, and gendered spaces. The company is a gold partner of PFLAG and a Platinum sponsor of the HRC. For these reasons, Macy's receives a High Risk rating.
