Fortune's 'Best Companies To Work For' list hits gay rights milestone

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) - For the first time ever, all 100 firms on Fortune's Best Companies To Work For list this year have non-discrimination policies that include sexual orientation.

In 2008, 95 of the top 100 Best Companies to Work For had such policies in place, and by 2011 that number was up to 99.

"It's been gathering strength over the 15 years that we've done the survey," said Milton Moskowitz, a co-author of the list. Similar progress has been made in benefits for same-sex domestic partners, which are now offered by 89 of the 100 companies listed, up from 70 five years ago.
