JPMorgan Chase asks staff to identify if they’re LGBT ‘allies’: employees

By Dustin Siggins | lifesitenews.com

NEW YORK — JPMorgan Chase Bank is forcing employees to inform them whether they are “LGBT” or an “ally of the LGBT community,” according to Princeton Professor Robert George.shutterstock_161196923_810_500_s_c1

At the Mirror of Justice blog, George posted an email he received from a friend employed by the company relating that there were some unusual new questions on their recent annual Employee Survey.

The survey asked employees if they fit into any of the following categories:

  1. A person with disabilities;
  2. A person with children with disabilities;
  3. A person with a spouse/domestic partner with disabilities;
  4. A member of the LGBT community;
  5. An ally of the LGBT community, but not personally identifying as LGBT.

In response to the fifth option, George’s friend said, “What?! What kind of question was that? An ‘ally’ of that community? What’s the alternative if you don’t select that option? You’re not a ally of the LGBT community?”

“This survey wasn’t anonymous. You had to enter your employee ID,” he added. “The worry among many of us is that those who didn’t select that poorly placed, irrelevant option will be placed on the ‘you can fire these people first’ list.”

A spokesperson for the company told LifeSiteNews on Monday that the employee survey is anonymous and that the employee identification numbers are used to ensure only employees are taking the surveys.

In a follow-up email, LifeSiteNews asked for confirmation that the LGBT questions were asked, and why. LifeSiteNews also asked what “ally” means in the company’s view and whether protection is provided to employees who don’t fit its definition of “ally.” LifeSiteNews also asked whether Chase would provide a copy of the survey. The spokesperson declined to comment or provide the survey.

Prof. George indicated Chase’s questions could lead to the kind of professional harassment faced by former Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich, who was forced out of his job because of his support for marriage.

“The message to all employees is perfectly clear: You are expected to fall into line with the approved and required thinking,” he wrote. “Nothing short of assent is acceptable. Silent dissent will no longer be permitted.”

In a follow-up post July 1 at Mirror of Justice, George reported that he had received an email from a second employee.

“I just wanted to confirm the Chase employee survey. It did have the last two options about being an LBGT ally,” said the employee, who asked to remain anonymous. “I have worked for Chase for [here he gave the number] years and was blown away by this question. I have no idea what they were thinking when they asked that.”

Chase is a well-known supporter of Pride Parades and the homosexual movement.

    I don’t want to harm the Christian Chase employees through lack of business, but JPMorgan Chase can go to Hell, literally, and not with any of my money in its pockets.

    The last Company I worked for had a survey just like that and the company said it will not effect your job but if you have common sense you know it will it all a plot to fired the people against the homosexuals and they will base your firing on discrimination.

    So basically if you don’t support homosexuals you’re going to get fired or automatically disqualified from working there. Eventually this will spread to the entire workforce. This is expected.

    Obviously the creator of the questionnaire also considers GLBT as a disability and is very disabled mentally for even concocting this type of questionnaire.

      Exactly, that’s why when they send employee surveys out on my job, I do one thing, DELETE, lol.
      I suggest everyone do the same. This is utter foolishness.
