Have you worked at a Jimmy John's and experienced low wages or unfair labor
McCune Wright Arevalo, LLP has filed an employee class action lawsuit against Jimmy John’s alleging that it has unfairly restricted hard-working employee wages resulting from its franchise agreement which prohibits its franchisees from hiring each other’s employees, in violation of federal antitrust laws. Such agreements are called “no-poach” agreements and they limit the employee’s ability to change jobs between franchisees. The no-hire, no-solicit contract provision at issue is part of the franchise agreement between defendant Jimmy John’s and its many sandwich restaurant franchisees.
Under terms of the franchise agreement, Jimmy John’s franchisees are prohibited from hiring any current employee of Jimmy John’s or a Jimmy John’s franchisee, or any employee who has worked for Jimmy John’s during the preceding 12 months. Franchisees are likewise prohibited from soliciting such persons to seek employment with them.
Jimmy John’s filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit. A Federal Judge
ruled that the case could proceed. If successfully, the lawsuit could
return significant lost wages back to the employees.
