Why franchising needs to have a little soul http://ow.ly/3Dqo302SjBc

June 8 (Reuters) - The attorney general of Illinois on Wednesday filed a lawsuit claiming fast-food franchise Jimmy John's unlawfully requires its low-wage workers to sign agreements barring them from working at other sandwich shops in wide swaths of the country. http://ow.ly/T2wD3017u9s

Jimmy John's snatches defeat from jaws of victory. AA had apparently agreed not to bring case if JJ modified its policy. JJ then allegedly changed only the manual but did not fully implement policy throughout the system. Good case -- no conceivable impact on trade secrets, with palpable effect on wage suppression.

In a federal court case brought by a franchised Chevrolet automobile dealer against its franchisor, GM, challenging a performance standard used by the franchisor to evaluate its performance as allegedly being “unreasonable, arbitrary or unfair” in violation of provision of New York’s Franchised Motor Vehicle Dealer Act (FMVDA), the United States Court of Appeals certified to the New York Court of Appeals the question of whether the franchisor’s use of a performance standard that defined “average” performance based on statewide sales data, and that did not account adequately for local variations beyond adjusting for local popularity of general vehicle types, was “unreasonable, arbitrary or unfair.”

This certification process was necessary as the few reported decisions that had addressed performance standards at the time of the federal court decision in 2015 had not adopted a consistent interpretation of what was reasonable or acceptable under the FMVDA. About a year after the question was certified to the New York Court of Appeals by the federal court, the NY Court of Appeals filed its answer that the use of a franchisor sales performance standard that relies on statewide data and some local variances but fails to account for all significant local demographics, such as brand popularity, to determine whether the franchisee had met its performance requirement is unlawful under the FMVDA.

Essentially, store investor was a dealer, Judge says. Opportunism at work in a prototypical setting.
