NLRB Files Complaints Against McDonald’s
Legal Broadcast Network interviewed David Scher, principal, The Employment Law Group® about
how the National Labor Relations Board has named McDonald’s USA and McDonald’s franchisees as joint employers for purposes of the Fair Labor Standards Act. The holding is a win for unions in that it will make McDonald’s liable for labor violations by franchise owners. Complaints were filed against McDonald’s in more than 100 cases. The complaints allege that workers were fired or intimidated for participating in union organizing activities. David Scher discusses the NLRB’s action.
