Here’s why McDonald’s slammed ousted CEO Easterbrook as ‘morally bankrupt’
CNBC’s Kelly Evans breaks down why McDonald’s slammed ex-CEO Steve Easterbrook as "morally bankrupt" and what may be next for the fraud allegations against Easterbrook with CNBC’s Kate Rogers and NBC News’ Danny Cevallos. For access to live and exclusive video from CNBC subscribe to CNBC PRO: https://cnb.cx/2NGeIvi McDonald’s slammed former CEO Steve Easterbrook in a new legal filing on Monday, arguing that he should have to defend his conduct in court. More than two weeks ago, Easterbrook asked the Delaware court to dismiss the case filed by McDonald’s, which is suing him to recoup his severance package after saying it discovered that he had sexual relationships with three additional women while at McDonald’s. The board ousted Easterbrook in November and awarded him a severance package with an estimated value of tens of millions of dollars after he acknowledged an affair with an employee but denied additional sexual relationships. The separation agreement also included some benefits for McDonald’s, like noncompete and nondisparagement clauses, which Easterbrook’s attorney pointed out in his request for dismissal of the case. “Easterbrook’s suggestion that, his lies notwithstanding, McDonald’s got a good enough deal by ridding itself of him has no legal merit,” McDonald’s responded in the filing. In arguing for a dismissal, Easterbrook claimed that McDonald’s had the “new” information about his alleged relationships the entire time. Easterbrook allegedly deleted emails containing evidence of those relationships on his phone, yet they remained on the company’s servers. McDonald’s said in its filing that Easterbrook’s argument boils down to “he cannot be liable because, as a matter of law, he did not hide his misconduct well enough.” Easterbrook’s attorney did not respond to a request for comment from CNBC. “When McDonald’s investigated, Steve Easterbrook lied. He violated the Company’s policies, disrespected its values, and abused the trust of his co-workers, the Board, our franchisees, and our shareholders,” McDonald’s said in a statement to CNBC. “His argument that he should not be held responsible for even repeated bad acts is morally bankrupt and fails under the law.” » Subscribe to CNBC TV: https://cnb.cx/SubscribeCNBCtelevision » Subscribe to CNBC: https://cnb.cx/SubscribeCNBC » Subscribe to CNBC Classic: https://cnb.cx/SubscribeCNBCclassic Turn to CNBC TV for the latest stock market news and analysis.
