McDonalds to Indemnify Manager Because He Gained 30Kg On the Job

A McDonald's in Brazil was ordered to pay compensation to a former employee who said he had gained weight about 30Kg (64 pounds) during the 12 years he worked in the company.

He probably used himself as evidence.

The decision, approved on appeal, provides for payment of R$30,000 for punitive damages.
According to information from the press office of the Regional Labor Court, the official said weighed between 70 and 75 kg when he started working in the cafeteria, and 105 kg when he left work.

According to Judge John Ghisleni, the former employee was required to taste high-calorie foods like burgers, fries, sodas and ice cream..It is not known if he was required to swallow though.

The former employee also claims that the meals provided by the Company were also high-calorie foods and that it was not possible to exchange them for money for a snack or meal voucher.
