"We have strong policies, procedures and training in place specifically created to prevent sexual harassment", McDonald's said. The company also disclosed last week that it will turn to outside experts to help "evolve" those policies, including consultants from Seyfarth Shaw at Work, an employment law training firm.

Workers at McDonald's around the country are planning to strike on Tuesday, September 18th to send a message that sexual harassment must end within the company. Another woman from Gretna, Louisiana, said a co-worker would grab her hand and place it on his crotch, and would also grope her breasts and butt.
That committee would ideally comprise workers, representatives from corporate and franchise stores, leaders of national women's groups, and "would chart a path forward to make sure nobody who works for McDonald's faces sexual harassment on the job", according to Equal Rights Advocates.
One St. Louis woman told 5 On Your Side that a guy she worked with constantly pushed and treated her inappropriately, but management did nothing. "After that he would ignore me on the job and yell at me in front of my co-workers". That legal effort was organized by Fight for $15 and the Time's Up Legal Defense Fund.
