Fair Franchising Acts – An Update

We recently wrote in this blog on the development of “fair franchising acts” in a number of states, statutory alterations of franchise law that could dramatically rearrange how the franchisor-franchisee relationship has historically worked. We ran across a piece by our colleague David Kaufman in the  April 24 New York Law Journal which concerned a recently introduced bill in California known as “The Level Playing Field for Small Business Act of 2012.” The article is worth a look, as it highlights many of the concerns we raised in our blog entry. The law looks to reinvent many of the fundamental aspects of the franchisor-franchisee relationship and should be of interest to franchisees and of concern to any franchisor.
