McDonald's workers file sex harassment claims
NEW YORK (AP) - Energized by the #MeToo movement, two national advocacy groups are teaming up to lodge sexual harassment complaints against McDonald's on behalf of 10 women who have worked at the fast food restaurant in nine cities.
The legal effort was organized by Fight for $15, which campaigns to raise pay for low-wage workers. The legal costs are being covered by the TIMES UP Legal Defense Fund, which was launched by the National Women's Law Center to provide attorneys for women who can't afford to bring cases on their own.
The complaints were filed with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and are being announced two days before the company's annual shareholder meeting. Responding to the claims, McDonald's says there's "no place for harassment and discrimination of any kind" in the workplace
