PAUL LEMAIRE, Cross-examined:
1 full-time at McDonald's.
3 MR. JUSTICE BELL: But only until you became a Floor Manager?
4 A. That is correct.
6 MR. MORRIS: When did you become a Floor Manager?
7 A. October 7th, 1993.
9 Q. So, 35 to 40 hours would be the normal time that a
10 full-timer would work?
11 A. That is what I worked, yes.
13 Q. After becoming a Floor Manager, what hours were you
15 A. 40 to 50, just staying on at the end of the shift to
16 help out and clear up; so up to about 50 hours a week.
18 Q. You had to stay on after the end of your scheduled shift,
19 did you?
20 A. I did not have to stay on. I had to do bits and
21 pieces. I had not finished my job that I was doing in the
22 day, so I wanted to continue it myself after I had finished
23 my scheduled shift.
25 Q. So you did not manage to finish your job regularly?
26 A. Not regularly.
28 Q. Every day, every week?
29 A. I stayed on to help out there. If I needed to do some
30 of my own work again, I could not do that in my time. Say
31 I was scheduled a certain shift, I was doing my work then,
32 and after I finished that job I would do my own stuff.
34 Q. It would be fair to say that your work did not fit into
35 the -- you had too much work to do in the time allotted to
36 you, the normal 30 to 40 hours, so you had to stay behind
37 and work on it?
38 A. No.
40 MR. JUSTICE BELL: Is the picture that you would be doing your
41 bit on the floor during your shift, and any paperwork and
42 similar stuff you had to do, you would stay on and do
44 A. Exactly so.
46 Q. Was that the general pattern?
47 A. That is what I was doing, that is right.
49 MR. MORRIS: So you had all this extra paperwork on top of your
50 working on the floor?
51 A. While I was on the floor, I was told to do certain
52 things, but I would get some stuff done, half my stuff
53 I was asked to do, and get the other stuff done afterwards.
55 Q. Were you scheduled for a normal 35 to 40 hours?
56 A. Yes, I was.
58 Q. Then you had to stay on longer because you had extra
59 paperwork and stuff?
60 A. That was my choice to stay on.
