    The National Labor Relations Board's Office of the General Counsel recently authorized the issuance of unfair labor practice complaints that treat McDonald's USA, LLC, as a "joint employer" with its franchisees. Among the issues raised by the General Counsel's directive are:
    • How the directive impacts representation proceedings and bargaining unit determinations under the National Labor Relations Act
    • How the directive potentially affects the viability of the franchisor/franchisee business model

    In this program, our panel of seasoned practitioners representing management, labor, franchisors, and franchisees will discuss:

    • The impact of the General Counsel's directive on other, non-McDonald's, franchising companies and their franchisees
    • The scope of a franchisor's liability for a franchisee's unfair labor practices and/or other legal violations
    • How the General Counsel's directive could impact other areas of employment law, such as wage and hour or EEO liability
