[NEWS] Is it okay for the CEO to have a consensual relationship with an employee

Post by TheButcher » November 4th, 2019, 12:37 pm

McDonald' CEO Steve Easterbrook has left and is replaced by Chris Kempczinski as President and CEO. So what do you think of any CEO having a consensual relationship with an employee. personally I see nothing wrong in this, if 2 adults want to have a relationship that is their business. It is not as if it does not happen all the time in many companies. I believe we all worry too much about other epoples' relationships and sex lives.

My 2 cents.

(NEW YORK) — McDonald’s chief executive officer has left the company after violating company policy by engaging in a consensual relationship with an employee, the corporation said Sunday.

The fast food giant said former president and CEO Steve Easterbrook demonstrated poor judgment. McDonald’s forbids managers from having romantic relationships with direct or indirect reports.

In an email to employees, Easterbrook acknowledged he had a relationship with an employee and said it was a mistake.

“Given the values of the company, I agree with the board that it is time for me to move on,” Easterbrook said in the email.

McDonald’s board of directors voted on Easterbrook’s departure Friday after conducting a thorough review. Details of Easterbrook’s separation package will be released Monday in a federal filing, according to a company spokesperson.

The board of directors named Chris Kempczinski, who recently served as president of McDonald’s USA, as its new president and CEO.

Kempczinski was instrumental in the development of McDonald’s strategic plan and oversaw the most comprehensive transformation of the U.S. business in McDonald’s history, said Enrique Hernandez, chairman of McDonald’s board, in a statement.

“Steve brought me into McDonald’s and he was a patient and helpful mentor,” Kempczinski said, thanking him for his contributions.

I guess otherwise it would not be enforceable

You can put whatever you want in a contract?

WRONG!

He signed a contract agreeing to NOT do this and that if he did that it would end the contract.

Has NOTHING to do with LOVE or consensual!!
