Asking for Naked Pictures Is A Form Of Sexual Harassment

     The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission recently settled a lawsuit against a franchise that operates seven McDonald’s restaurants.  The lawsuit alleged that the company subjected a teenage employee to sexual harassment.  The EEOC’s lawsuit asserted that one of the company’s managers sexually harassed a 16 year old employee.  The EEOC claimed that the teenage employee endured sexual comments, sexual requests, and that a supervisor offered her money in exchange for naked pictures of herself.  The Complaint further alleged that the harassment eventually reached a point where the supervisor sexually assaulted the employee.  The alleged conduct is a violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.  See EEOC v. Par Ventures, Inc. d/b/a McDonald’s, No. 5:19-cv-00341-FL (E.D.N.C.).
