Investigating potential class action lawsuits against various fast food franchises for entering no-hire agreements with other fast food franchises within the same company. As a result, franchises are prohibited from hiring anyone from another franchise for a defined period of time. This is alleged to be a violation of anti-trust laws and it can hurt workers by preventing job growth and suppressing wages. Franchises engaging in this behavior may include: Arby's, Burger King, Domino's, Dunkin' Donuts, Five Guys, Jimmy John's, Little Caesars, McDonald's, Panera, Papa John's, Pizza Hut, Popeyes, and Wendy's. Recently, Applebee’s, Church’s Chicken, Five Guys, IHOP, Jamba Juice, Little Caesars, Panera Bread and Sonic agreed to remove a these no-poach clauses from their contracts with franchisees in Washington state. In addition, ten other states are now investigating no-poach agreements within the restaurant industry in their jurisdiction.
