Stark & Stark Franchise attorney, Adam J. Siegelheim, presented a seminar Wednesday June 9, 2010 entitled, Are Your Franchisees Your Employees? The webinar discussed the recent case, Awuah v. Coverall N. Am., Inc., in which the court held that certain franchisees were the franchisor’s employees. In determining that the franchisees were employees, the court applied the "ABC" test, which is used by 26 states, including New Jersey. Mr. Siegelheim discusses the Coverall case, and how this decision may impact franchisors who sell franchises in Massachusetts and other states.
