McDonald’s fires CEO over affair with employee

Nov 04, 2019 12:39 IST

McDonald’s has fired its chief executive officer for violating company policy by engaging in a consensual relationship with an employee, the corporation said. The fast food giant said former president and CEO Steve Easterbrook demonstrated poor judgment, and that McDonald’s forbids managers from having romantic relationships with direct or indirect subordinates. In an email to employees, Easterbrook acknowledged he had a relationship with an employee and said it was a mistake.
