Jimmy John's, asst mgr class action plaintiffs square off over whether sandwich chain is 'joint employer'
Facing a growing number of lawsuits over its alleged treatment of assistant store managers, sub sandwich restaurant chain Jimmy John’s has asked a Chicago federal judge to determine exactly how much responsibility it should bear for how its franchisees classify, pay and manage those assistant managers.
Under a proposed $38.75 million settlement to end one of the class action lawsuits it faces over abuses within its red light camera program, the city of Chicago could pay those who were ticketed under the program half of the money they paid to the city for the alleged wrongful $100 fines. Attorneys for the plaintiffs who brought the case, however, could drive off with more than $11 million in fees for their work, should a Cook County judge sign off on the deal.
