Event Details

In light of the rapidly changing regulatory landscape with respect to how much control franchisors can and should have over their franchise operators, we have a special program on Franchise Compliance & Control.

A month ago, the National Labor Relations Board, made a preliminary finding that the franchisor McDondald's could be consider a joint employer with some of its franchise operators for the purposes of allowing the employees of the franchise operators to engage in collective bargaining - becoming a union.

The union involved is the SEIU, or Service Employees International Union.

The SEIU was also instrumental as an instrumental sponsor of a Franchisee-side legislation in California, SB-610, which makes non-renewal of a franchise difficult unless there have been significant material breaches of the franchise agreement.  Says the SEIU

"The relationship between franchisees and franchisors needs to be more balanced to ensure that small business owners have more say in running their business, including the ability to improve conditions for their employees."

What does this mean or foretell for franchisor and franchise owners relations?
