A McDonald’s customer in Golden Gate, Florida claimed she was the victim of a physical attack after leaving the restaurant following a complaint about the freshness of her order.

Edislennis Santana, a former McDonald’s employee, picked up an order from the drive-thru. She felt that the bacon was not as fresh as she was accustomed to, and she entered the store and complained to a worker about her issue. The restaurant staff informed Santana that the bacon was fresh, but they eventually decided to replace it with a new order.

24-year-old Widna St. Jean, a friend of the employee receiving the complaint, was present for the altercation and claimed that she did not care for the way Santana conducted herself toward her friend. She was said to have stepped outside of the establishment when Santana was returning to her car to leave, and she noticed they were parked adjacently.

An employee who used to work for the clothing store Forever 21 discovered video camera footage on various pornographic websites of herself using the employee bathroom. She is suing the company for negligence and invasion of privacy alleging that they should be held accountable for failing to prevent the camera’s placement and protecting the privacy of their workers. The victim also filed for an order protecting her identity as she wishes to remain anonymous.

In 2011 the woman was attending Providence College in Rhode Island while working at Forever 21. A single-stall employee bathroom shared by staff members reportedly contained a hidden camera, which the victim claimed as the source of the videos circulating the internet. She discovered the footage at the end of last year.

Court documents reflect in the woman’s complaint that Forever 21 failed to provide security of any type in order to monitor and protect against the placement of the camera, and though the restroom was intended for the sole use of employees they have no way to be sure an unauthorized person or persons did not enter the lavatory.
