Can my boss fire me for allowing Adrian Peterson to use the bathroom?
See the story at:
Well, yes. There’s nothing about this situation that triggers any laws prohibiting discharge, such as discrimination, retaliation, whistleblower protections, etc. Letting someone into the restaurant at 3 AM probably violated company policy, and is thus legitimate grounds for termination. In this case, McDonald’s reinstated the employee after the media got a hold of the story.
The real question is, why was Adrian Peterson at McDonald’s at 3 AM?
