In honor of National Gay and Lesbian Month, the online job search service SimplyHired has launched a GLBT (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgendered) friendly job search feature. The new filter searches within companies given a perfect score for GLBT friendly policies by The Human Rights Campaign.
SimplyHired points out that there is no US federal policy prohibiting employment discrimination on the basis of gender identity or sexual orientation and workers in 34 states can be fired at any time based on these factors. That’s not right and it’s good to see a startup moving in to help with the situation.
SimplyHired is based in Mountain View, California and also offers filters for mom friendly jobs, dog friendly and other types of niche job requirements.
