A Clemmons Burger King is the latest fish caught in the EEOC’s teen sexual harassment net. Burger King will pay $85,000 to Kathleen Joyner, a teenage employee, who was subject to unwanted touching, sexual advances and requests for sexual favors from the store’s general manager.
When Joyner complained about the behavior to assistant managers, they did nothing.
As part of the settlement, Burger King will provide sexual harassment training to its supervisors and post its sexual harassment policy in the store. The policy will give employees specific information about how they can file complaints with.
Note: Employers must always have two avenues available to employees to file sexual harassment complaints. If those options aren’t open, employers have no defense in court. This settlement was small, but the next one could be a whopper!
