Apple Computer Corporation

Here is an excerpt from this companies policy:

"Apple is an equal opportunity employer, and does not unlawfully discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, marital status, age, sexual orientation, gender identity characteristics or expression, disability, medical condition, U.S. Military or veteran status in recruiting, hiring, training and promoting. All other aspects of employment such as compensation, benefits, transfers, terminations, layoffs, recalls, training, tuition assistance, social and recreational programs, etc., shall continue to be administered so as to reflect the above policy. Certain states may cover additional groups and, in those states, Apple extends its EEO policy of non-discrimination to those groups.

It is the responsibility of every employee to conform with this policy. This policy prohibits unlawful harassment of any kind, including sexual harassment, and slurs or jokes based on any protected class. Furthermore, Apple will not retaliate against any employee for filing a complaint and will not tolerate retaliation by management employees or co-workers.

Any employee who feels that he or she has been treated contrary to this policy, including any harassment by company personnel or work-related harassment by any other person, should contact his or her supervisor, any member of the Human Resources department or the Employee Relations office, or any line manager, up to and including the CEO.

Any employee who is found to have violated this policy shall be subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment."

This is a great policy as it specifically mentions gender identity

In this excerpt gender identity is not specifically mentioned but investigation determined that the company did consider this included under sexual orientation.
