A Maryland IHOP manager has been charged with sexually harassing female employees, in some cases teenagers, according to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). According to this HR Drive article by Lisa Burden, the manager who violated the Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 would allegedly ask personal questions about the female employees, sometimes making sexual comments and inappropriately touching the employees.
The article also states that the management company in charge of that particular IHOP branch, Koerner Management Group, Inc., was aware of the allegations of sexual harassment after an employee notified them. No action was taken to stop the harassment from happening.
