Papa John's: Address sexual harassment

The Department of Human Resources needs to be called out. There are thousands of employees getting hurt from the blind eye of this department not doing anything about these types of claims. They don’t care. Something needs to be done.

Why is this important?

I am a former employee of Papa John's Pizza. I was encouraged, then agreed to be promoted, as AGM last year. I realized through our personal payroll program that I was not getting paid my promised wage. This was brought to my manager’s attention, as well the Area Supervisor’s, eliciting the same response that they will “take care of it.” A few weeks of patiently waiting for a correction and following the chain of command, there was none and I eventually had to call the payroll department myself for retroactive pay.

Earlier this year leading up to this from an extremely poor, hostile work environment not only from coworkers, but managers, I was sexually assaulted by my superior while working as an AGM. After being refused from my store manager to Human Resources, I was never offered any paperwork or advice to file my claim for this incident. Following the proper procedure(s) of bringing this to my superior's attention multiple times, I was fired in retaliation and informally transferred to another store location. As a young female, this is a completely different generation that we are bringing into the workforce, speaking up about these issues. For the millions too afraid to truly express themselves, I would like to bring awareness towards this issue to prevent this from becoming a precedent.

This is about the laws that we can’t ignore and especially stay silent about. This is not just about me. This is other people. The Department of Human Resources needs to be called out. There are thousands of employees getting hurt from the blind eye of this department not doing anything about these types of claims. They don’t care. Something needs to be done.

I am seeking stories from any current/former employees who have experienced discrimination, been fired for retaliation, or anything similar: please come forward, comment below sharing your story, help bring action and create awareness for better employee policy change(s) at Papa John’s Pizza.

How it will be delivered

I will present this petition to Equal Employment Opportunity Center.


Reasons for signing

  • Current shift lead for the company and have experienced this many times by another coworker
  • I spoke up for months about unfair practices at my store in Lancaster Pennsylvania. The day I told the AGM I was putting my foot down and going to the store owner, that same day, I showed up for my 5pm shift and the GM said I was no longer welcome at that store. Coincidence? The store owner did nothing. I was let go for speaking up. Legit. I’ve been contacting corporate relentlessly for a month now and get nothing.
  • I’ve had plenty of bad experiences. Starting with my GM in corporate sexually harassing me to catching my DO in franchise sexually harass his employees. Not only that, I’ve been called out of name by the same DO for being robbed and not treated equally in my work place. It has to stop!
