: What should be done to an employee if he or she accusses a patron of shooting up drugs in the bathroom?? Do you think she should be fired?? Do you think there should be a lawssuit?? McDonalds is suppose to be a happy place for families.......What if the kids heard or the other patrons?
: Let me know because it happened to me.....Thanks!!!
You actually have several options here. If they threatened to call the pigs or otherwise violate your rights, you may strike back both inside and outside the system. You could, for instance, sue BOTH the employee AND McDonalds if the police were called for slander and abuse of process, or sue the employee alone for slander if they were not. If any negative consequences other than cops ensued, you could again add McD's to the suit. This might force them to dump the antidrug and antipoor activist employee.
If you lack the witnesses, funds, etc. to sue, find out the employee's name, and use it to get their home address. Once you know where they live, put up fliers describing the incident in nearby low-income areas, including the employee's home address. If racial or other problems were involved, so much the better. Soon you will have that community up in arms and boycotting the offending place. A community rally at this point can further increase the pressure.
If this is also not practical, I have heard of people taking some old keys, putting them on keyrings, and tagging them with the target's address and dumping them in high-crime areas. This will encourage home visits by REAL drug users, and show him/her what real heroin addicts are like, so in the future they will know the difference.
