MCCUNE WRIGHT AREVALO, LLP FILES CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT OVER HIRING PRACTICES AT MCDONALD’S CORPORATION
On 2017, McCune Wright Arevalo, LLP, filed a class action lawsuit against McDonald’s Corporation on behalf of a former manager, Leinani Deslandes, and thousands of McDonald’s franchise employees whose economic interests have been injured by McDonald’s past hiring practices. The lawsuit alleges that McDonald’s has acted illegally by placing unlawful “no-poach” restrictions on the ability of franchises to hire or recruit employees from other franchises.
The lawsuit alleges this is an antitrust practice that unfairly restricts employees from being paid market rates for their work, and helps contribute to the well-documented efforts by McDonald’s – a company valued at over $100 billion – to pay their employees less than a living wage. In filing this suit on behalf of affected franchise employees, in addition to compensating class members, the class action attorneys of McCune Wright Arevalo, LLP hope to stop this practice and thereby help increase the ability of tens of thousands of hard-working McDonald’s employees to earn a living wage for their work.
