A manager at a Schenectady, N.Y. Subway franchise allegedly demanded sex from teenage applicants in exchange for jobs at the sandwich chain. Two underage girls reported the manager to the EEOC after he sent them explicit texts suggesting that they would be hired if they had sex with him.

According to the complaint, neither girl was hired to work at the Rotterdam Square Mall Subway after they refused the propositions.

The EEOC’s lawsuit seeks compensatory and punitive damages. Attempts to resolve the dispute through the EEOC conciliation process failed.

Note: Employers must train management personnel about sexual harassment and swiftly address all sexual harassment complaints when they arise. In this case, the text evidence should have been sufficient for the employer to take action.
