McDonald’s not lovin’ it after teen harassment settlement

by on
in Discrimination and Harassment,Human Resources

The owner of a McDonald’s franchise in Perth Amboy will pay $50,000 to settle an EEOC harassment lawsuit filed on behalf of a male teenager who once worked at the restaurant.

The boy complained that an assistant store manager made lewd comments and inappropriately touched, hugged and even spanked him. The employee was 16 and 17 years old when the incidents occurred.

In addition to the monetary compensation, the settlement requires the McDonald’s franchise to train managers and supervisors about sexual harassment and inform workers about harassment complaint procedures.

Note: The EEOC takes teen worker harassment seriously. In many cases, teen workers are supervised by managers only a few years older than they are, a hormonal mix that may make harassment training even more critical than in other workplaces.
