BCLP Partner Tony Marks, Franchise Team leader, authored an article Aug. 19 in Forbes concerning the California Fast Food Accountability and Standards Recovery Act, or FAST Act, which he contends poses an imminent threat to franchised and non-franchised restaurant businesses, restaurant workers and consumers of the Golden State. “The FAST Act aims to establish a Fast Food Sector Council and set industry-wide standards on minimum wage, working hours, and working conditions,” Tony wrote. “If enacted, it is doubtful that, after taking into account the likely resulting business closures and cessation of franchising by many franchisors, that the FAST Act will accomplish its purported purposes.”
