Chick-Fil-A Manager Facing Sex Crime Charges Involving Underage Employee

A former manager at the Chick-fil-A location in Fair Oaks Mall has been arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting an underage employee at the Fairfax County, VA restaurant.

32-year-old Daniel Medianero Salazar is charged with solicitation and taking indecent liberties with a minor.

According to a search warrant, Salazar asked the employee for nude photos. She initially refused, but eventually sent a topless photo out of fear of losing her job. Salazar allegedly began texting the underage employee repeatedly, asking her to have sex with him. She refused and did not tell anyone about the solicitations.

An affidavit alleges that Salazar brought the girl into a hallway behind the restaurant, where he sexually assaulted her. The girl contacted the police after this alleged assault. Police gathered evidence from that hallway and arrested Salazar.

2nd Lt. Jane Burns of the Fairfax County Police says that there could be more victims because Salazar worked with many other underage employees. Other potential victims have been encouraged to come forward.

Legal Options For Victims of Sexual Assault in the Workplace

Victims of sexual harassment in the workplace have legal rights. Here is attorney contributor Kevin Biniazin with some thoughts on the legal options available to these victims of sexual assault:

No employee should be subjected to sexual assault or harassment in the workplace. But sadly, sometimes managers take advantage of the power they have over their employees. Many victims in this situation may hesitate to come forward for fear of losing their jobs, which is an understandable response. But these victims have rights. Along with reporting the assault to the police, there are many situations in which victims of sexual assault in the workplace have grounds for a lawsuit.

A lawsuit may be possible in cases involving negligence, such as a company hiring an employee without first conducting a background check that would have revealed a history of sexual misconduct. Another example of negligence is a failure to respond to previous complaints of sexual harassment.

If you’re a survivor of workplace sexual assault, you may be able to find justice through the legal system. Reporting the assault to law enforcement should always be the first priority, but it’s usually wise to also speak with an experienced sexual assault survivors lawyer about your legal options.
