At least six employees of Frisch's Restaurants have filed four sexual harassment complaints against the company--and two of them charge retaliation after they reported the alleged incidents.
Frisch's, operator of 90 Big Boy and 27 Golden Corral restaurants, disclosed the complaints today in a regulatory filing. Don Walker, Frisch's CFO, described the complaints as "routine legal matters" that typically face chain restaurants. "We have 7,500 employees," he said. "Everyone's got a few people who are going to COMPLAIN." Caps are mine: real sensitive.
As a point of information to followers of FRS, company chairman Jack C. Maier died yesterday morning at his home. He was 79. A nice bio appears on the Cincinnati Business Journal website, and a smaller article is on the Cincinnati Enquirer website.
