    Answered . This is probably better resolved with the HR at McDonald's than a private lawsuit. The reason is that your son did not suffer damages.

    Answered . It does not appear that McDonald's is liable for what its manager did outside of work. However, it is very possible that the owner, whether an individual or a corporation would be very interested in how its manager behaves. Look on your son't pay check or W2. Contact the upper management or the owner and deal wiith them directly. It is sad that anyone would take advantage of your son like that.

    Answered . I am an attorney licensed in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the States of Delaware and New Jersey. My practice includes employment, business and health care law. Before I respond to your inquiry, I must state that we have not spoken, I have not reviewed the relevant documents and facts, and I do not represent you. Therefore, my discussion below is not a legal opinion, but is informational only. Finally, my discussion applies only to issues to which Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey or Federal law applies.

    That being said, there is a good chance McDonald's has no liability for the off-duty actions of the manager. However, you should contact upper management at McDonald's to advise them of this activity, I suspect they would be very disturbed by it. You should also report it to the police.
