Franchisors and Franchisees: Too Close for Comfort?

Tuesday, September 9

12:00 pm - 1:30 pm EST

Our topic for two seminars will be the relationship between franchisors and franchisees in the light of business and legal developments making headlines these days.

Over lunch on Sept. 9th in Charlotte and Sept. 23rd in Greenville, we will discuss questions such as these:

  • What does it mean to be deemed a "joint employer"?
  • How can a franchisor protect its brand without crossing the line and facing potential liability as a join employer with its franchisees?
  • Why is the National Labor Relations Board trying to redefine joint employer status, and what is behind its dispute with McDonald's?
  • How much protection do franchise agreements and other operating documents provide against joint employer status -- are simple disclaimers enough?
  • What are the risks ahead, and what steps can be taken to minimize them?

Featured Speaker: David Dubberly

Our guest facilitator will be David Dubberly, chair of Nexsen Pruet's Labor and Employment group and co-author of our recent Franchise POST article, "Actions May Speak Louder than Words: Can Franchise Agreements Protect Franchisors from Liability as Joint Employers?"

We look forward to seeing you!
