Franchise & Distribution 

The franchise industry is currently facing significant challenges to some of the most basic principles of the franchise model – the independent nature of franchise businesses and their employees. Recent developments, including action at the NLRB regarding “joint employment,” and a patchwork of state and local raises of the minimum wage, are cause for concern.

Join us for a presentation to explore what these developments mean to you and methods to protect your business in the coming years.
