TAG: Correspondent Jeremy House reporting.

VERBATIM: Easterbrook was ousted for engaging in an inappropriate personal relationship with a McDonald’s employee in violation of company policy. That’s according to the Securities and Exchange Commission in its order. But the separation agreement with McDonald’s concluded that his termination was without cause, which allowed him to keep substantial compensation in McDonald’s stock that otherwise would have been forfeited.
