McDonald’s will pay more than $505,000 to four former workers who won a lawsuit in which they charged the manager of a Durango store with harassment. The plaintiffs, who were teenagers at the time of the harassment, claimed the manager bit their breasts, grabbed their buttocks and made sexual comments.

A lawyer for two of the victims said the girls did not pursue criminal charges because they feared they would be revictimized in the process.

John Bronson, owner of the Durango franchise, wrote apology letters as part of the settlement. “Managers have admitted they knew it was their responsibility to protect employees, but they did not,” Bronson wrote. “We are sorry for any perception you may have had that the managers blamed you for what happened.”
