Before you apply for or accept a job, do you check the employer's non-discrimination policy?

I do. I need to know if I can be fired for being a member if the LGBT community. I need to know what I have to hide if I'm at work.

Keep in the bedroom and it won't be an issue. Work is for work. Not making political dustups.

I don't simply because I believe that employer should have a right to discriminate whom ever he wants. It's his job he just hires someone to do it.

I was applying for a Catholic school, I knew I needn't bother this last time round....

No; they'll always comply with the law formally, but in states with at-will employment like California, it's pretty meaningless anyway. Doesn't matter what the policy is or isn't.

I haven't applied for a job yet, but I do try and check before buying items from them, if that counts

No. Frankly, it never occurred to me. But then my last two jobs were at (indirectly) a federal government agency (NIOSH) and a large university. In both places if there was any discrimination it wasn't at all obvious... I can't think of any

protected classes that weren't widely represented... well, maybe sexual orientation because it's not obvious, but I knew non-heterosexuals in both places. But religion, age, gender, race, nationality... all over the map.
