Oh! how McDonald’s and tort reformers around the country have trashed the woman who was burned with OSHA-violating coffee in her private parts. The case was settled with with a nondisclosure clause, so you have never heard from the woman. The tort reformers went to work and turned this into the horrible frivolous claim that hurt poor McDonald’s.

But, this post really isn’t about that case. It’s about how McDonald’s treated its employee. A man who stopped a customer from being punched at the store and who himself was shot. The justice he received was no coverage. Yep, he was outside the area of his employment. Watch the video and see if you agree:

This is that beacon for corporate injustice. Looks like a frivolous defense to me.

    Thanks for this interesting news that I previously haven't heard about. I would have acted in the manner as Mr.Haskett if I was an employee there. And really, how many of us out there would have not done the same thing in defense of an assualt victim ? I think that's a question within reason and should be made clear to the McDonald's corporation, before they make an even worse name for themselves. Mmmmm, good coffee there McDonald's, now time to wake up and smell it, huh ?
