    McDonald's Statement on NLRB 'Joint Employer' Standard

    This particular case focuses on issues involving Browning-Ferris and its subcontractors, not McDonald’s, therefore it’s inappropriate to comment on their case.
    At McDonald’s, we do not have the authority to direct or co-determine the hiring, firing, wage rates, hours, or any other terms of employment of our franchisees’ employees – which, for decades, has been the well-established criteria governing the definition of a “joint employer.”
    We are proud to have fostered thousands of individual entrepreneurs and small businesses through our franchise system, a system that allows an individual to own her or his own restaurant business, but benefit from the global perspective, industry strength, and experience of McDonald’s corporate resources.
