Foods Folk Norge announced the information about Kleivan’s resignation in a press release on Wednesday, the newspaper Bergensavisen writes.
“For McDonald’s, safe workplaces are the key to success. When we seen such large discrepancies discovered by the Norwegian Labor Inspection Authority, and under my leadership, it is ultimately my responsibility.
