Dirt from Under the Golden Arches: Workers Take McDonald's to Court
Joseph Sellers, plaintiff s attorney
Fast-food workers hit McDonald's with multiple class-action lawsuits claiming McDonald's is deliberately and is systematically stealing employees' wages by forcing them to work off the clock, shaving hours off their time cards and not paying them overtime, among other illegal practices. For workers already struggling to afford the basics, it's nearly impossible to make ends meet McDonald s " which raked in nearly $5.6 billion in profits last year " doesn't pay workers for all of their hours.
Attorney Joseph Sellers said: McDonalds has tried to shield itself from liability for these unlawful employment practices committed at its franchise restaurants. But we found evidence that McDonalds Corp. had indeed exerted the control over the daily operations at these franchise restaurant that makes it legally, jointly responsible for these unlawful pay practices. We believe it's time that McDonalds accept responsibility for the pay practices in its franchise restaurants as it serves jointly as an employer there.
