Fast Food Giants End No-Poach Agreements

April 22nd, 2019
fast food worker

No-poach agreements take advantage of low-wage employees and staunch their advancement opportunities within a company. However, fast food chain giants, such as Arby’s, Little Caesar’s, Five Guys, and Dunkin’ Donuts have recently signed an agreement to end the common practice in franchises throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

No-poach agreements prohibit franchise owners from hiring an employee from another franchise within the same chain. A Princeton University report found that employers do this to save on training costs for new employees and trap workers to one position in the company to limit their earning potential. For example, an employee from one Arby’s cannot accept a job at another Arby’s that offers a higher pay rate or promotion.

Those opposed to no-poach agreements think they take advantage of a vulnerable work-force and violate anti-trust laws. Many employees do not know that they are trapped by these agreements. Even if they were made aware of the restriction, many employees are not in the position to negotiate the terms of their employment. Employees should consult with an employment lawyer before signing any type of contract.
