According to the BBC News, an employee of a Netherlands McDonald’s was dismissed for adding cheese to an employee’s hamburger and not charging for the slice. The fast food chain argued “this turned the hamburger into a cheeseburger, and so she should have charged more.” A Leeuwarden district court saw things differently, stating firing was too harsh and a written warning was more appropriate. The court ordered McDonald’s to compensate the fired employee the equivalent of $5,900 dollars ($4,200 euros) and adding insult to injury, reprimanded the burger giant with these stinging words “it’s just a slice of cheese.” Who knew so much hoopla could be created by a slice of cheese?
