Allow Companywide Benefits for Same-sex Partners

    1. Petition by

      Andrew Zimmerman

      Columbus, GA

On the morning of May 7, 2012, Equity Foundation asked 300 Aflac shareholders to provide full domestic partner benefits to its employees nationwide. Aflac rebutted by stating, "Aflac does not want to intrude upon or examine the private lives of its employees -- or place itself in the unenviable position of monitoring the personal relationships of its employees -- but we do want to provide benefits to employees who have made the effort to have their relationships recognized in an official way." - Audrey Boone-Tillman, Aflac's vice president of Corporate Services.

Not every state allows same-sex domestic partnerships, and by Aflac denying benefits for same-sex partnerships in states that don't allow them, they're stating that same-sex relationships are less valued than heterosexual relationships and not worth the extra cost.

Please let Aflac know this is unacceptable.

      All families, regardless of age, ethnicity, skin color, religious affiliation, gender, sexual orientation, and country of origin, should be allowed benefits under any employer benefit package.

      because I believe EVERYONE has equal rights! Regardless of what their preference is or whom they're married to. That has absolutely NOTHING to do with wanting security and safety for themselves or their family.

      I'm signing this petition because I want to help Aflac stay on the right side of history and because, despite whatever subjective interpretations many may want to adhere to, it is in fact illegal, in word and spirit, to discriminate against anyone based on any fundamental aspect of their personal being. This includes discrimination against all members of the LGBT citizen subset.

      It is worth noting that the most fundamental laws of our country are worded in such a way (purposefully so) that citizens do not need to have their orientation explicitly protected by law. The protection is automatic.
