Taco Bell Settles Sexual Harassment Lawsuit for $35,000
A llaw between the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ("EEOC") and a Taco Bell restaurant involving a sexual harassment lawsuit was settled for $35,000. Penn Taco will pay a group of female employees $35,000 as part of a settlement with the EEOC. Additionally the company agreed to revise its anti-discrimination policies, and provide training to supervisors and managers about Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and how it applies to sexual harassment.
The company must also post a notice of the settlement. The company is now taking steps to protect employees from unlawful sexual harassment and hopefully won't have issues arise like this in the future.
"We are pleased that Penn Taco worked with us to resolve the case," Equal Employment Opportunity Commission acting regional attorney Debra Lawrence said.
