McDonald's Fires Sarah Finch for Putting Too Much Chocolate on a McFlurry

| by Michael Allen

Sarah Finch, a 19-year-old worker at a McDonald's in Carmarthen, West Wales, was fired after she put too much chocolate on a McFlurry ice cream dessert for a co-worker.

Now, Finch is taking McDonald's to an employment tribunal to fight the ruling, reports The Sun.

Finch told The Sun: “I was dismissed on the grounds of gross misconduct. I was accused of stealing food. The matter was trivial, in that I provided a fellow employee, who was purchasing a dessert, a generous sprinkling of chocolate pieces. There is no standard for such measures, they are always imprecise and will vary among customers."

“My colleague had asked me, ‘Make it a nice one,' so the measure I gave erred on the side of more than, rather than less than, the mean.”

Finch had worked at McDonald’s for 18 months and was described by managers as an “exceptional employee” before the firing.

Finch added: “The issue was that I had done this in response to a specific request for someone I actually knew. Had it not been in response to a request, or it was someone I did not know, then I do not believe there would have been even a warning.”

The McDonald's store is standing by the firing.
