    Judge: McDonald's Must Pay Obese Employee $17.5K

    ----wow----


    A Brazilian court ruled this week that McDonald's must pay a former franchise manager $17,500 because he gained 65 pounds while working there for a dozen years.

    The 32-year-old man said he felt forced to sample the food each day to ensure quality standards remained high, because McDonald's hired "mystery clients" to randomly visit restaurants and report on the food, service and cleanliness.

    The man also said the company offered free lunches to employees, adding to his caloric intake while on the job. His identity was not released.

    The ruling was signed Tuesday by Judge Joao Ghisleni Filho in Porto Alegre.

    Ghisleni said McDonald's could appeal the case, and the Brazilian headquarters of the chain said in an e-mailed statement Thursday it was weighing its legal options.

    McDonald's also noted that it offers healthier food choices.

    "The chain offers a large variety of options and balanced menus to cater (to) the daily dietary needs of its employees," the company said in the statement.

    McDonald's headquarters is in Oak Brook, Illinois.

    Did McDonald's compel him to drive to work and park as close to the building as possible instead of walking some, too?

    maybe if he would have spent the rest of his day cleaning like a madman he would have been ok.

    I am 38 years old and have gained at least that much in 12 years. I wouldn't consider myself obese at 6"1" 220 lbs. How fat was this fucker when he was hired. Too bad for him he wasn't in the US, a court here would have awarded his fat ass millions of dollars.

    See, you don't have to taste test the food every day because, ummm....McDonalds hires other people to do that.

    I wonder what this lard ass has done to correct this little weight problem. Has he changed his diet at all? Has he occasionally seen the inside of a gym? Or do the executives at McDonald's routinely shoot him with a tranquilizer dart every morning to prevent any type of physical activity? I'd like to know what any of these people who claim McDonald's made them fat have done to correct their weight problem.

    .....hey, this is my 100th post. And it only took 7 years!

    Exactly. Did McDonalds force him not to go to a gym over a 12 year period?

    It only takes a bite or two to taste-test if he really had to, which I don't believe. Also, just because the lunches are free doesn't mean you have to eat them. And if you do eat it, were the salads not included in the "free lunch" program. Grilled chicken sandwich?
