McDonald's National Labor Relations Board

Unfair labor practices suit

11 Jan, 2016

Workers sue McDonald’s over unfair labor practices, which include threatening, spying on, and in some cases terminating workers for organizing. The National Labor Relations Board is representing the workers and includes McDonald’s Corp. itself as joint employers along with their franchisees, holding the parent corporation jointly responsible for inappropriate labor practices.

Without joint employer accountability for the franchisors or the contracting company at the top, these types of corporate outsourcing can result in a lack of accountability for workplace conditions.
