A Bojangles’ restaurant in Greensboro, North Carolina has been accused by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission of allowing a manager to sexually harass female employees and unlawfully firing one of them for complaining about the harassment.

According to the EEOC’s Complaint, from mid-2008 to July 2009, the restaurant’s manager made explicit, obscene sexual comments to a female worker at the restaurant on several occasions, including requests for sexual favors and requests for oral sex in exchange for time off.  The lawsuit alleges that on one occasion, the store manager approached the female employee in the restaurant’s outdoor shed, exposed his penis and asked her to touch him.  The EEOC alleges that the store manager terminated the female worker in retaliation for complaining to the company’s area director and senior director of human resources.

Sexual harassment, and retaliation for complaining about it, is discrimination which violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.  The EEOC is seeking monetary damages for the fired worker and other harassment victims at the restaurant, along with injunctive relief.
