Fast food franchisee ordered to pay $7K for age discrimination

Posted: Updated:
CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

A fast food franchisee must pay nearly $7,600 to a Chambersburg woman for discriminating against her based on her age.

The Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission said it ordered Paksh LLC of Hagerstown, Maryland to pay Sharon Emmons $6,839.76 for lost wages and expenses, plus interest that brings the total to $7,591.

Emmons filed a complaint that claimed the company discriminated against her based on her age when it refused to hire her at its Dunkin Donuts and Baskin Robbins store at 1479 Lincoln Way East, the commission said in a news release.

After multiple notices, the company failed to answer the complaint. The commission said it held Paksh liable for illegal discrimination and held a public hearing, which the company failed to attend.

The company has 30 days to report to the commission on how it will comply.
