Sexual Harrassment At Mendota Fast Food Restaurants

Posted by wlpo on December 27, 2012

The owner of KFC and Taco Bell in Mendota will shell out thousands of dollars to settle a sexual harassment lawsuit.

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has ordered Mendota Restaurants Inc., owned by Devang Brahmbhatt to pay 150 thousand dollars to a dozen sexual harassment victims.  The suit was filed last year claiming a manager made sexual advances, contact and lewd comments towards women workers.  The restaurants were also accused of forcing workers out after complaining of sexual harassment.

An attorney prosecuting the lawsuit said many of the harassment victims in Mendota were teenagers.
