Meijer has not publicly terminated business relationships based on views or beliefs. Meijer scored a 100 on the 2023 Corporate Equality Index (CEI) from the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), a political stakeholder group. By complying with Human Rights Campaign’s controversial demands, Meijer 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. Meijer 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. The company does not provide its employees with protections against viewpoint discrimination. Meijer uses its corporate reputation and funds to advance ideological causes and fund several groups hostile to freedom of expression. However, it does not discriminate against charitable organizations based on views or beliefs. For these reasons, Meijer receives a High Risk rating.
