McDonald's Attorney Says Company is Victim of Union Attack on Brand

Mar.30.2015 — Wall Street Journal

Washington, D.C.-based counsel and member of the firm's Labor & Employment Group, Christopher Calsyn, contributes his knowledge to the Wall Street Journal article that explores the issue as to whether or not companies like McDonald's share responsibility for the actions of their franchisees, particularly regarding complaints about low wages paid to fast-food workers. Calsyn provides that traditionally a parent company would need to have direct and immediate control over personnel matters like hiring and firing, but this case could decide whether the franchiser has sufficient control over employees to be considered a joint employer.
