McDonald’s confirmed Monday that its Chief People Officer David Fairhurst has departed the company, effective immediately.

Fairhurst’s departure follows the company’s announcement Sunday evening that the board fired CEO Steve Easterbrook for violating company policy by having a relationship with an employee.

McDonald’s declined to comment further, citing company policy to not comment on personnel matters.

Shares of McDonald’s were trading down nearly 3% Monday afternoon.
