McNoDate? In a bizarre move, McDonalds ousts CEO over ‘consensual’ relationship with employee!

“Any policy which intrudes into an employee’s personal space has to go. McDonalds needs to stop behaving like an overprotective father"

McDonalds fires CEO over relationship with employee

While there are sexual harassment policies in place across all companies in the world, McDonalds has a rather unique one that fails to meet senses. In one of its bizarre policies, McDonalds prohibits any kind of consensual relationship with a co-worker. And on the receiving end was none other than the worldwide CEO Steve Easterbrook.

In a statement released by McDonalds on Sunday the decision to dismiss the CEO over violation of company policy was conveyed to public. The USA president of the burger chain is to replace the ‘Consensual Relationship Offender’. However, not much clarification and detail followed the announcement. And the backstory still remains cloudy. A lot of people on social media platforms smell something fishy in the headlines. But if it is what is being said, this has to go down as one of the silliest dismissals ever. It’s totally understandable if somebody falls in love with their co-worker. You spend half of your life at office! And as far as everything is consensual there shouldn’t be a problem. Any policy which intrudes into an employee’s personal space has to go. McDonalds needs to stop behaving like an overprotective father.

 

The decision didn’t go down well with tweeples. And there outrage came out rather sarcastically. Check out these tweets.
