The Ninth Circuit Holds that Under California Common Law a Franchisor Cannot be Classified as an Emp

The Ninth Circuit has held that under California common law, a franchisor cannot be classified as an employer of its franchisees’ workers; a franchisor also is not an agent of a franchisee who can be held liable for wage-and-hour violations under an ostensible-agency theory. (See, Salazar v. McDonald’s Corporation - filed Oct. 1, 2019 - 2019 S.O.S. 17-15673.)
