McDonald’s is facing mistreatment allegations after 100 employees come out.
More than 100 current and former UK McDonald’s employees have complained about a poisonous culture of sexual assault, harassment, racism, and bullying.
The BBC was claimed that workers, some as young as 17, are constantly touched and abused.
The UK equality watchdog has stated that it is “concerned” about the BBC’s findings and has established a new email hotline.
McDonald’s admitted that it had “fallen short” and “deeply apologized.”
It went on to say that all employees deserved to work in a safe, respectful, and inclusive environment.
The BBC began examining McDonald’s working conditions in February, after the firm signed a legally binding agreement with the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) promising to safeguard its employees from sexual harassment.
McDonald’s maintained at the time, “We already have a strong track record in this area.”
Our study, however, has found a quite different image.
There were 31 complaints of sexual assault and 78 of sexual harassment among the more than 100 allegations we heard from employees.
We also heard 18 charges of racism and six allegations of homophobia.
