National Franchisor Updates and Implements Improved Immigration Compliance Guidelines

North America - United States | North America

In response to increased federal immigration-related enforcement actions, one of the country’s leading retail franchisors partnered with our firm's immigration team to draft and implement a new comprehensive set of immigration compliance guidelines to be released to all of its franchise operations.

The company’s network of franchisees includes thousands of retail businesses, employing tens of thousands of workers, in more than 40 states. This project is an example of how our firm's nationally recognized franchise and distribution law group regularly leverages its deep subject matter expertise in other specialty areas of law to effectively manage franchise systems, which includes understanding where the legal interests of franchisors and franchisees align with one another, and anticipating and identifying where the legal responsibilities between the entities must remain independent.
