McDonald’s Just Fired Their CEO for Consensual Sex

by Evil HR Lady on November 4, 2019

McDonald’s fired its president and CEO, Steve Easterbrook. CEOs come and go, but this one is leaving for consensual sex with an employee.

Please note, no one is claiming sexual harassment or coercion. They are reporting a consensual affair, so why the termination?

Because, as Easterbrook said in an email to employees, “This was a mistake. Given the values of the company, I agree with the board that it is time for me to move on.”

I agree. Here’s why.

Power exists, even if everyone consents

As CEO, Easterbrook was the most influential person at McDonald’s. No one was his equal. No peers. No matter how loving and wonderful the relationship was, he still held an excessive amount of power over this unnamed person.

Basically, leave the social interaction meeting for partners outside of the company personnel, even though one spends at least 40 hours of work week side by side, sometimes more than time spent with others. Maybe if less emphasis is placed on making work a social experience, more actual work will be done.
There’s nothing wrong with a casual meetup of a group of co-workers but it should be limited. BFFs and coworkers are not in the same sphere.
