  • McDonald’s faces 25 new sexual harassment lawsuits

The coalition "Fight for $15", which is seeking a minimum wage of $15 an hour, on Tuesday said workers at McDonald's owned by both the corporation and franchisees, filed 25 new sexual harassment charges with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The Chicago-based company has also long said it should not be liable for how employees in franchised restaurants behave. The complaint alleges company failed to respond to repeated efforts by workers to seek assistance from management. Some workers say they were demoted or fired when they complained about harassment.

McDonald's said it has more than 14,000 locations in the United States, over 90 percent of which are franchised, with some 850,000 workers.

"By strengthening our overall policy, creating interactive training, a third-party managed anonymous hotline and importantly, listening to employees across the system, McDonald's is sending a clear message that we are committed to creating and sustaining a culture of trust where employees feel safe, valued and respected", Easterbrook wrote.

McDonald's has 14,000 restaurants in the USA, and 95 percent of them are franchises.
