California Assembly Bill 1228 or, the “Fast Food Franchisor Responsibility Act” seeks to make fast food franchisors liable for certain civil violations committed by their franchisees. The Bill was passed by the California Assembly on 31 May and awaits a vote in the Senate. If signed into law in its current form, the Bill would drastically increase the legal exposure of certain franchisors in the fast-food industry.
