McDonald's sues ousted CEO, alleging employee relationships
"McDonald's has made striking new allegations against its former CEO of the company says Steve Easterbrook hid sexual relationships with employees and concealed the evidence. The fast food giant fired Easterbrook last year. Now it is suing him to get back his multi $1,000,000 severance package. NPR's Alina Selya HQ reports. What makes this case pretty remarkable is that it's been nine months since Easterbrook was fired. The reason a consensual relationship with an employee that amounted to sexting and American corporate culture typically is all about sorting these kinds of internal scandals quickly and behind closed doors. Here's Tim Hubbard, a professor at the University of Notre Dame. There's always this tendency to wanna settle it quietly and get it completely out of the media. But here we are talking about it again because now McDonald's Is suing Easterbrook, saying he covered up more inappropriate behavior. McDonald's made this unusual choice because back in November, Easterbrook left with the severance estimated at over $40 million. But in July, an anonymous tip led the company to search corporate servers and their investigators found explicit photos and videos sent from Easter. Brooks corporate account evidence of sexual relationships with three employees, including one woman for whom Easterbrook approved a stock grant worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. I think that there was an expectation as they were negotiating a settlement. That the former chief executive officer be open and honest. The company says he lied to get a better exit payout and is suing to get that money back. Few companies find these kind of public battles with former executives. MacDonald says. It's already moved to block Easterbrook from selling any stock he might still have from his equity awards. I don't really see the likelihood of him returning the money without A bit of force needed. I think it gets pretty nasty Easter. Brooks legal team did not respond to NPR's enquiries, and we should note that McDonald's is among NPR's recent sponsors. Mr Brooks, Compensation for being fired drew much attention and criticism last year. It included six months of severance pay shares and other equity, leading many low wage frontline workers to muse about their pay gap with executives. And use the moment to highlight allegations of rampant sexual harassment of female employees by male co workers and managers across McDonald's restaurants sharing to Johnny directs the time's up Legal Defense Fund, which is backing workplace sexual harassment lawsuits by McDonald's workers were going to say You can't do certain things that were going to take conduct seriously. And they should be taking it seriously when it comes to their workers being sexually harassed, and, at a minimum committed 40 million. They're trying to get back from Easterbrook to stop that. Easterbrook successor, CEO Chris Kempinski often speaks about re committing to company values of integrity and inclusion. On Monday, McDonald's told workers it's conducting in global survey and listening sessions to assess the state of its corporate culture.

"They were also fifty percents on Saturday, which means that people who aren't necessarily just casual fans are actually trying to watch golf on a day. Other than just when the final round is which is impressive as anything in the history of American golfers who have won a US open in a PG and the same year, it's only five. Now Brooks kept Gazon that and the history of guy who's won three of the last seven. I don't tiger did that nine times, but not so shabby for Mr. Brooks CAPCO by the age of twenty eight. We'll move on Maryland football where we are today with the death of player. Jordan McNair being ruled from each strokes after the mate team workout and the school placing coach DJ jerky on administrative leave with the nature base of Washington seizures come miles from the campus from Maryland ESPN dot com. He's put a spotlight on the culture of. We're McNair receive little tension is immediate time of me. He didn't one that's considered the aftermaths of what's your reaction to reading. There's a large problem. There's small problems with large problem is football overall as a whole. You talk to anybody who's played college football there, tell you that hardcore off season conditioning is something that is just a standard part of the game. The smaller part of part of the problem is at Maryland specifically where they refuse to call or they did not call an EMT for an extended period of time, and the relationship between the coach and the strength coach is one that created such an issue. However, overall, I think this is something where is it solutions based situation is what he would say, conferences have to step in and just start regulating what happens in the offseason with these teams, you've gotta find a way to make it such that they cannot hurt themselves because they will always do so given the chance because football coaches will practice every single time they want. In this case though, durken's gotta go, Maryland is not the kind of school that I can live with. This is Ruth years. Yeah, it does seem to me that the most disturbing part was that there are probably any number of programs out there that are this close to having something this tragic happening. To them too, because that type of culture that's been reported on by on ESPN dot com. That type of culture doesn't seem like it's that different than you would kind of in vision for football program even in two thousand eighteen because you know, frankly, those things just build up over time and they're just kind of there. Now I agree with with Clinton where Maryland doesn't seem to have the football background to be able to treat its players like that. But it's another reason why makes me think that that is so rampant among NCWA institutions. I'm with Clinton. I think a lot of institutions needs to check the way they approach these things in the way they handle these kids because these incidents like Jordan McNair can happen. What do you pitch? We're decades away from the Frank Kush kind of football coaching, where you ran up mouths in Phoenix where it was over one hundred degrees and they must separate themselves from the head coach, the athlete trainer, the football trainer, and especially the assistant athletic director there was in charge of before months, and he was the one conducting the off season training sessions. So there was no no reason for the way they're doing it, and I don't think congress should get involved. I think the NC double a. and I know we can laugh about the NCAA has to step in and say, these are the conditions under which you can operate. And also I think schools should hire an independent observer to watch all practices during the year during the off season and monitor what goes on and they can report independently to the incident. Yeah, I'm surprised. He's still coaching. Why is he still coaching what is taking them so long to get rid of this guy, a child die under his watch under his preseason workouts he was the coach. He was a leader if he was a professor in any other part of the university in this happened, he wouldn't still be there. I'm stunned. He's still there. The culture has to change the entire culture has to change, and I'm glad that the interim they named was a coach who had just got there..

"Arthur brooks you know there's a lot there and there's a lot of ideology that that conservative listeners are gonna disagree with the first of which is overpopulation is inherently a problem on the contrary you find that countries that that are in the greatest danger right now because of the decline in their populations you find that the spain for examples in the process of losing twenty five percent of its population and isn't in a process of of of underdevelopment at this point they're they're they're turning back into a country that's not as rich as they could've been into the circumstances people are the ultimate resource and so what we need to do is to manage our resources appropriately to remember that we are stewards of the earth but the people are not inherently harmful and this is a piece of advice i often give to conservatives they don't like the environmentalist agenda i completely get that but that doesn't mean that that conservatives should be hostile toward uses of the earth i'm sportsman i i like to hunt and fish i love nature i think that the idea of conserving it is a deeply conservative thing to do comes from the same root as a matter of fact conservatives need to be better conservationists of the earth's bounty and remember that people are stewards of this great wealth in this great blessing and if we do that i think that a lot of good hearted liberals are going to understand the conservative agenda an entirely different way let's go to maggie and huntington beach california you're on the michael medved show hey thanks for taking my call you bet i am fascinated with the person of mr roger and the movie that's coming out and i've been trying to take on the character mister rogers doesn't dealing with people who are different than me and i have a ten year old son and i'm trying to parents him and when i see him going in a direction that is wrong direction i'm wondering how mr brooks with suggests it's not just my son it's my friends who have different opinions and and when i eat somebody doing wrong or pursuing a wrong thing what is the right what is his suggestion to me how i can be loving and understanding but still keep them from going off the great question maggie arthur thanks maggie maggie boy i have kids too and and i have i have a houseful teenagers so you know so pray for me it's it's it's really tricky because our tendency is to say basically when somebody's right now and again when when a kid is doing something dangerous obviously coercive activity is sometimes required but what we're talking about somebody who who who thinks in a way that it's incorrect it's not motivated by the facts is saying something that's not morally right that's a different kind of priority i think and so the first thing to keep in mind is if when you're talking to somebody who who disagrees with you somebody who is who you think is incorrect morally or or factually on the issues the first thing to say to yourself is i love this person this person is my brother or sister i am so lucky to live in a country where i can disagree with this person and neither one of us is going to go to jail i mean when i'm talking to people from china boy oh boy does that ever put that the perspective and then based on the fact that i'm trying to be motivated by love that starts from people who love each other they actually want to understand what the other person is saying frequently we think other people are wrong because we don't have a full understanding of what they're saying and so the first priority is philly and i got all the time you need i need i need to understand exactly your point of view and why you hold that point of view arthur brooks has been helping people see points of view they might not consider his books are published up.
