French Presidential hopeful vows to ‘name and shame’ anti-gay employers · PinkNews

French Presidential frontrunner Emmanuel Macron has pledged to “name and shame” employers who discriminate against LGBT people.

Macron, a centrist candidate who is currently the favourite to become the country’s next leader, launched his full policy manifesto today.

While his likely run-off opponent Marine Le Pen’s manifesto included no policies on LGBT rights other than scrapping same-sex marriage, Macron dedicated an entire section to LGBT issues.

In it he pledged to challenge homophobic in everyday life, and to tackle anti-LGBT discrimination in the workplace.

The candidate said he would scale up random checks of employers’ compliance with equality laws, while also “naming and shaming” those found to have discriminated.
