Exxon: Criminal Charges and Same-Sex Marriage Benefits
The company has faced bad press as a result of the fracking and illegal dumping issue that has been going on for several years already after it was discovered in 2010. Exxon already had to clean it up and faced civil charges prior to the criminal charges, but another recent announcement is more positive news for the company.
Exxon has announced that it is going to start offering benefits to legally married same-sex couples in the U.S., reports the Huffington Post. The new policy will go into effect October 1st, and it will apply to 77,000 employees and retirees of the company in the U.S.
