Family contract pilot scheme at McDonald’s

McDonald’s is to pioneer the trial of a ‘family contract’ that will enable two people from the same family working in the same restaurant to cover each other’s shifts.

About 1,000 out of McDonald’s 67,000-strong workforce are family members. Pairs made up of married couples, parents, children, siblings, grandparents, step-families, adopted families, co-habiting partners and same-sex partners are all eligible.

David Fairhurst, vice-president for people, said: “Giving our staff the freedom to manage their shifts will increase their motivation.”
