McDonald’s Faces a Negligence Lawsuit After a Teen Employee Was Sexually Assaulted by a Shift Manager

A teenage girl and her parents sued McDonald’s and a Bethel Park franchise operator Tuesday, alleging that she was harassed and raped by a shift manager with whom she worked, that the defendants knew about it and did nothing to stop it.

The complaint, filed in Allegheny County Common Pleas Court, identifies the girl by her initials and said that she was raped by the man in February. It names as defendants McDonald’s corporation and Rice Enterprises, which operates several area franchises.

The lawsuit accuses McDonald’s of creating and permitting “a sexually hostile work environment for its employees from the top down.”
