The Lieff Cabraser team led by partners Dean Harvey, Anne Shaver, Lin Chan, and associate attorney Jessica Moldovan recently won a significant victory and thereby securing a spot in last week’s Law360 “Legal Lions” listing. This recognition followed the Seventh Circuit panel’s decision on August 25 to overturn the lower court’s initial dismissal of Lieff Cabraser’s “no-poach” employee pay and mobility restriction lawsuit filed on behalf of employee plaintiffs against fast food chain McDonald’s. The class action lawsuit challenges McDonald’s since-discontinued no-poach clauses found in their franchise agreements, which previously prohibited employees from seeking opportunities at other establishments within the chain.

Lieff Cabraser represents fast-food employees in a series of lawsuits challenging the practices of fast-food franchises that illegally restrict employee mobility, advancement, and pay. The complaints allege the restaurants’ practices of restricting employees from being hired at other same-franchise stores violate antitrust law and cause worker wages to be lower than they should be. The practices also significantly limit employees’ career mobility and advancement.
