Teen-Age Worker Sues Burger King on Sexual Charges

NEWARK (CN) - When a teen-age worker complained that her manager at Burger King sexually harassed her repeatedly, including sending her sexually explicit text messages late at night, a Burger King human relations supervisor responded by telling her "that she did not know what 'real' sexual harassment was," the teen-ager says in Essex County Court.

Irine Turner says she was fired for complaining when the harassment continued.

She sued Burger King; Mark Jean, the manager who allegedly harassed her; and Barbara Thompson, the HR supervisor who allegedly blew off her complaints.

Turner is represented by Michael Kane of Westfield, N.J.
