Subway has been associated with some bad press lately. Below is a sexual harassment lawsuit, captioned EEOC v. Draper Development LLC d/b/a Subway, 15-cv-00877 (NDNY 7/21/15), filed against an upstate Subway franchisee. The lawsuit alleges that Defendant violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and specifically that:
Defendant … discriminated against the Charging Parties on the basis of sex by subjecting them to sexual harassment and failing to hire them when one of its managers offered them jobs at a Subway restaurant owned by Defendant in exchange for sex through illicit text messages. When the Charging Parties did not comply with the request, they were not hired.
