“The new risks are just too great. As the decision continues to shake out, franchisors will likely start taking a more active role in reviewing job applicants across the country, assessing hiring decisions before offers are made and advising on all compensation structures, bonus plans and so forth at individual locations. This will make people who were small business owners yesterday nothing more than corporate middlemen today.”
