A Westchester County, N.Y., Dunkin’ Donuts franchise finds itself in hot oil after a store manager allegedly slapped a female employee who refused his sexual advances. When she reported the incident to police, the manager fired her in retaliation.
The incident led to an EEOC sexual harassment complaint that discovered the manager had been harassing teen workers since 2011. He often yelled at the women and suggested a “threesome” with the young ladies. Attempts to settle the claim failed and the EEOC is now seeking monetary relief.
Note: The EEOC’s Youth at Work initiative recently updated its website, www.eeoc.gov/youth, which offers ways to combat workplace sexual harassment of young workers.
