Taco Bell paid $350,000 to settle EEOC sexual harassment lawsuit in Memphis

In August 2009, Taco Bell agreed to pay $350,000 to settle a sexual harassment lawsuit filed by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

The EEOC claimed that Terence Davis, a manager at a Memphis Taco Bell restaurant, sexually assaulted a 16-year-old female employee on her first day of work, and then tried to follow her as she fled home.  Davis was also accused of raping a second 16-year-old employee several months earlier.  One of the two teenage rape victims subsequently became pregnant.
 
Davis pled guilty in 2009 to raping both women and is currently serving two concurrent eight-year prison terms.  Upon his release, Davis will be required to register permanently as a sex offender.  In addition, as a convicted rapist, Davis will never again be permitted to work in any job employing minors under the age of 18.
 
Faye Williams, regional attorney of the EEOC’s Memphis District Office said, “These are particularly egregious allegations both because of the nature of the conduct and the age of the victims.  It is tragic when young employees, especially in their first jobs, are subjected to this level of sexual abuse by a manager.”
