The EEOC has filed sexual harassment charges against Dunkin’ Donuts for its alleged failure to stop a manager from harassing young women who worked at its Wynantskill store.
According to the complaint, the manager frequently harassed the female employees by grabbing their buttocks and breasts, kissing them on the neck and telling them how much he liked virgins. Many of the employees he allegedly harassed were teenagers.
The EEOC contends that, despite complaints from several employees, Dunkin’ Donuts paid lip service to the complaints, but never did anything concrete to stop the harassment.
EEOC conciliation attempts failed, so now the complaint has turned into a lawsuit headed for federal court.
