McDonald's Settles Sexual Harassment Law Suit

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) settled a lawsuit on behalf of an employee of one of McDonald's New Jersey restaurants. McDonald's USA will pay $50,000 for the settlement.

The EEOC charged that McDonald's USA unlawfully subjected one of its employees to sexual harassment. The employee's supervisor made offensive comments to him while hugging and spanking the employee in front of the staff.

Besides paying the victim $50,000 in damages, McDonald's USA consented to implement EEOC guidelines which includes the training of all McDonald's employees and for the restaurants to display EEOC notices and posters.

Elizabeth Grossman, the EEOC Acting New York District Director said "The EEOC takes very seriously allegations of sexual harassment involving teenagers because many of them are in the workplace for the first time and don't know how to complain, especially when the harasser is their supervisor."
