'I got a Sackflurry'

I got a SackFlurry: McDonald's worker axed 'for putting too much chocolate on dessert'

Bosses accused her of giving away food, even though it was paid for, and she was fired for gross misconduct


A McDonald’s waitress claims she was sacked for sprinkling extra chocolate topping on a McFlurry dessert.

Sarah Finch, 19, was asked by a workmate to make her a “nice one” of the 99p ice creams.

But even though her colleague paid for it, bosses accused her of giving away food and she was fired for gross misconduct.

Now Sarah is taking McDonald’s to an employment tribunal for unfair dismissal.

Ms Finch states in her application: “I was accused of stealing food.

"The issue was that I had done this in response to a specific request for someone I actually knew.

“Had it not been in response to a request, or it was someone I did not know, then I do not believe there would have been even a warning.”

Before she was sacked from her £180-a-week job Sarah, of Kidwelly, near Carmarthen, was described as an “exceptional employee”.

But Ron Mounsey, the director of the McDonald’s in Llangunnor, wrote to her mum and tribunal representative Tessa: “She has admitted giving away food without receiving payment.

"This is classed as gross misconduct as per my employee handbook, the consequence is dismissal.”

Sarah’s tribunal will be heard in Cardiff at a date to be fixed.

Re: 'I got a Sackflurry'

I work in McDonalds and I can confirm that giving away free stuff can get you sacked. Though in this case she clearly did not and hopefully she wins her case.

But that is McDonalds and then some

Re: 'I got a Sackflurry'

Does seem to be the way the world is during this "Economic Crisis" Employee's are under intense pressure especially from these big corporations not to make a single mistake and if they do then they are out the door because the Employer's know that they are 100's of people who will be happy to have a job there.

I recently got let go by Clarks for not selling enough shoe care, I would sell over a £1000 worth of shoes during a week but because I didn't sell enough stuff like a £3 bottle of leather cream or £4 insoles they decided tog et rid of me
