Taco Bell Franchisee Pays $35,000 to Settle Sexual Harassment Suit

Penn Taco Inc., a company that owns six Taco Bell restaurants in Pennsylvania, has agreed to pay $35,000 in order to settle a sexual harassment lawsuit that was filed against it by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

In addition, Penn Taco has agreed to revise its anti-discrimination and workplace bullying policies and to provide relevant training to its supervisors to prevent similar types of incidents from occurring. 

The EEOC has sued the Taco Bell franchisee after its general manager had allegedly subjected female employees at its restaurants in Lancaster and Hanover, PA to sexual harassment, making crude sexual overtures, comments, and gestures towards the women.

The lawsuit also claimed that Penn Taco management did not act to try to stop the abusive behavior after the victims had complained.
