Dunkin’, Arby’s, Five Guys, and Little Caesars will Drop Provisions that Limit Recruitment and Hiring of Fast Food Workers 

NEW YORK– In a multistate settlement with a coalition of 14 attorneys general, four national fast food franchisors will cease using “no-poach” agreements, which restrict the right of fast food workers to move from one franchise to another within the same restaurant chain.    

The agreements with Dunkin’, Arby’s, Five Guys, and Little Caesars settle an investigation announced by the states in July 2018 over concerns that no-poach agreements hurt low-wage workers by limiting their ability to secure better paying jobs.
