Also, the investigation discovered that Easterbrook “approved an extraordinary stock grant, worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, for one of those employees in the midst of their sexual relationship,” and that he lied to McDonald’s investigators last year.
The company alleges that by lying to the board, Easterbrook led them to believe that his firing could be considered “without cause.” The board ultimately landed on that designation, which entitled Easterbrook to certain outgoing benefits, the suit alleges. As part of the terms of his exit, Easterbrook was promised 26 weeks severance pay, in addition to prorated bonuses as warranted. Those benefits amounted to about $42 million, according to outside firm Equilar.
The company now attempts to reclaim hundreds of thousands of dollars in compensation paid to Easterbrook on his departure.
