MCCUNE WRIGHT AREVALO, LLP FILES CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT OVER HIRING PRACTICES AT MCDONALD’S CORPORATION

On June 28, 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. Contact McCune Wright Arevalo, LLP to learn more about potential participation in this class action lawsuit.

Equifax Data Breach Impacting 143 Million Americans – Lawsuit Investigation

McCune Wright Arevalo LLP is currently investigating a lawsuit against Equifax related to its announcement of a data breach impacting over 143 million Americans.  The sensitive information breached includes names, social security numbers, birth dates, addresses, and the numbers of some driver’s licenses. Additionally, Equifax said that credit card numbers for about 209,000 U.S. customers were exposed, as was “personal identifying information” on roughly 182,000 U.S. customers involved in credit report disputes. The breach occurred between mid-May and July, Equifax said. The company said it discovered the hack on July 29. This data breach is one of the worst ever, by its reach and by the kind of information exposed to the public. Unlike other data breaches, not all of the people affected by the Equifax breach may be aware that they’re customers of the company. Equifax gets its data from credit card companies, banks, retailers, and lenders who report on the credit activity of individuals to credit reporting agencies, as well as by purchasing public records.  Equifax is mailing notices to people whose credit cards or dispute documents were affected.

If you were impacted by this data breach and/or received a letter from Equifax regarding this data breach, please contact the lawyers at McCune Wright Arevalo LLP by filling out the form to the right.
