Caesars Entertainment Receives Unprecedented Sixth Consecutive Perfect Corporate Equality Index Rating From The Human Rights Campaign Foundation

Stocks in this article: CZR

LAS VEGAS, Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Caesars Entertainment Corporation (NASDAQ: CZR) was awarded its sixth consecutive perfect rating from the Human Rights Campaign's annual Corporate Equality Index. The Corporate Equality Index scores businesses based on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender workplace policies.

"To have received a perfect rating from the Human Rights Campaign Foundation on its Corporate Equality Index for the sixth consecutive year is a great honor," said Fred Keeton, vice president of external affairs and chief diversity officer for Caesars Entertainment. "Our unwavering commitment to diversity initiatives and our industry leading approach to LGBT workplace equality will continue to be a mainstay and guiding principle for our operations across the nation."

The Corporate Equality Index has provided a roadmap for employers to address their policies, benefits and other practices broadly for the past ten years. Rigorous rating requirements are used to score participating major U.S. businesses. The level of difficulty rises each year with an increased focus on social impacts and issues. A company must continually evolve its policies, making its efforts more robust. Employees at 100-percent rated companies are protected from employment discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity or expression because of their employers' policies on diversity and inclusion, training and benefits.

"We are happy to award Caesars with a perfect score as it continues to prove its dedication to serving and providing equal experiences for its LGBT guests and employees," said Deena Fidas, Deputy Director of the Workplace Project. "We congratulate Caesars on its leadership, exceptional track record and ongoing work on behalf of LGBT communities around the world."

Caesars Entertainment Corporation has a standing history of leadership in the gaming/entertainment industry supporting LGBT communities across the nation. This six-year achievement is a reflection of Caesars promise to create and facilitate policies and programs that are offered to all of its employees and guests. Relative to its LGBT employees, the company enforces its comprehensive non-discrimination policies, provides domestic partner benefits (including health care) and offers benefit coverage for gender reassignment.
