CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today, FeganScott, a national law firm dedicated to representing victims of sexual abuse and employment litigation announced that it has begun an investigation involving claims that Steve Easterbrook, the former CEO of McDonald’s, allegedly had sexual relationships with employees in the year before his termination, likely violating the company’s policies and creating an unsafe work environment.
“Employees deserve a safe work environment without the threat of sexual harassment from a CEO trying to exploit a power dynamic”
The firm launched the investigation after learning of new claims that the 53-year-old CEO sent dozens of nude, partially nude, or sexually explicit photographs and videos of various women, including photographs of company employees, as attachments from his company email to his personal account.
“Employees deserve a safe work environment without the threat of sexual harassment from a CEO trying to exploit a power dynamic,” said Elizabeth Fegan, partner and managing member at FeganScott. “Not only did Easterbrook try to cover up explicit violations of appropriate office conduct, such behavior from an executive team member sets an alarming precedent for what might be tolerated organization wide.”
