NYC Law Protecting Fast Food Workers Is Sued By Restaurants In Friday Dockets In SDNY

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 28 – Fast food workers at chains with more than 30 locations will be protected from arbitrary firing in New York City beginning on July 5, 2021.

The NY Restaurant Association and something called the Restaurant Law Center have sued to stop it.

  The case, filed late on the afternoon of Friday, May 28 into the docket of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York where Inner City Press found it, seeks an injunction against "Just Cause Laws" - and attorneys' fees. 

  The lawsuit bemoans the attack on "at-will employment, a standard in place for over 100 years."

The law coming into effect, the suit says, means that "before discharging or reducing an employee's hours by at least 15 percent, th[e] targeted subset of employers will be required to provide 'progressive discipline.'" The law is, yes, progressive. 

  In the SDNY this week, on the fast-food (and fraud) front, Inner City Press covered the jury trial and conviction of Ruless Pierre for chicanery involving two franchises of Planet Wings, here.

This case is Restaurant Law Center, et al. v. City of New York, et al., 21-cv-4801 (Unassigned)
