BUT, contracts are becoming even more important in a high-turnover sector like catering, because employees come and go more often. In a virtually unprecedented move in New York, Attorney General Schneiderman has announced over the past two months (June, June 22, and August 4) deals with three different companies in three different ones. In general, an employment contract may include provisions on: a typical franchise agreement contains a language that defines how franchisees can interact with employees of other restaurants of the same name (but run by different franchisees). Burger King, for example, explains: “Neither BKC nor the franchisees will attempt, directly or indirectly, to induce or induce an employee of the other or another franchisee of BKC to leave such employment or to hire such an employee within six (6) months of the termination of the employment contract. unless the employer has given his prior written consent. The terms of other companies` franchise agreements have similar restrictions. Wendy`s, for example, has a one-year ban. Hewitt says he prefers clauses that are closely tailored to the industry, geography and timing. “We want to see something that says, `No Italian restaurants below 14th Street for a year,`” he says. Everything else is a deterrent to rent. Leonti knew he was taking a risk to look for work elsewhere, but a lawyer advised him that competition bans as broad as his own were rarely enforced. He decided to try, stopped a headhunter and was taken in April to soho`s 60 Thompson Hotel, where owner John McDonald hoped to restart the hotel`s southern Italian restaurant, Sessanta.
Jimmy Johns is facing an antitrust action after a federal judge in Illinois refused to dismiss charges in a class action lawsuit. The applicants claim that the chain`s franchise agreement affected competition by preventing the franchisee from affecting the franchisee. The restaurant industry may seem exactly the opposite of the corporate world: employees feel like family, staffing plans are not determined by the 9-to-5 grind, and (most) employees do not work at an office. A restaurant contract is an employment contract that describes the role of a new employee in your business and can protect the way your restaurant is run. Maybe you`d like to reserve non-compete or no-debauchery clauses for a manager or chef to prevent them from working for a competitor when they have the ideas of expanding your restaurant in mind, or create their own restaurant and bring your best talent. . . .
