A McDonald’s worker from the Netherlands was fired after she gave a cheeseburger to a colleague who only paid for a hamburger. A court has found that this is not a good enough reason to fire someone.
The AFP reports:
“The dismissal was too severe a measure,” the district court in Leeuwarden in the north of the Netherlands said in a written judgment.
“It is just a slice of cheese.”
It then ordered the company to pay $6,006.69, the salary she would have earned during the last 5 months of her contract.
McDonald’s maintains that she broke the rules by giving free gifts to friends, family or coworkers.
