We are urging people across the globe to “Void Chase” for its highly-inappropriate and menacing employee survey about which they continue to mislead the public.  The survey, in which the employee’s ID number was required, asked whether each employee was an ‘ally’ of the LGBT-community. 

J.P. Morgan Chase has been falsely yet routinely claiming that the survey was “voluntary and anonymous” but now a media outlet has found the smoking gun irrefutably establishing that the allegations are true.  Click here for more background on this scandal.

This tactic of actively inquiring of every employee whether they support the LGBT community is an egregious invasion of privacy, and one that has the potential to be used to punish and intimidate those who do not answer in the politically-approved way. As one employee who came forward with the evidence stated,

When your company is asking you if you are an ally of this community, it’s not like they are asking you if you like the Cleveland Browns. It makes you wonder what could happen. They are asking this for some reason. It will compel someone to do something. I am afraid I could lose my job or have it used to stack the deck against me.

The mega-bank has refused to answer for this survey, or to apologize and reassure its employees and consumers. This is a major violation of trust, the central value in any banking relationship.

So, we’re calling on Chase customers worldwide to join the “Void Chase” campaign. We are demanding that the bank issue a formal apology for their offensive conduct and pledge never again to invade the privacy of their employees by attempting to learn their private views about LGBT issues, and—until they do so—pledge to take your banking business elsewhere.

Sign the following statement today to register your protest. It will be delivered to the Board of Directors of JP Morgan Chase.

Demand Chase Publicly Apologize

J.P. Morgan Chase’s decision to continue lying about the highly-appropriate and menacing employee survey is a major breach of trust with your employees and consumers. 

By requiring this survey and asking very inappropriate questions regarding employee’s thoughts on the LGBT community, you have created a threatening work environment.  One could very easily fear that this information—linked to employees’ unique ID numbers—could be used for intimidating and discriminating against those who fail to answer these questions in the way deemed "politically correct." As such, this survey is already a kind of intimidation and can be seen to have a menacing effect on the employees to whom it has been sent. Several have expressed fear of losing their jobs if they do not answer in the politically approved way.

Worse, the bank has intentionally and repeatedly lied about the nature of the survey, falsely claiming it was “voluntary and anonymous.” By denying, in the face of clear and public evidence, the nature of the survey you have destroyed the central value in any banking relationship – trust.

I demand that Chase publicly apologize to your employees for asking this highly-inappropriate question in the first instance, apologize to consumers for lying about your conduct and publicly pledge never to engage in conduct that invades the privacy of employees or consumers. Until you apologize for your offensive conduct and pledge never again to invade the privacy of your employees by attempting to learn their private views about LGBT issues, I am pledging to take my banking business elsewhere as part of the international campaign to “Void Chase” and I am urging my friends and family to do so as well.
