Published by Business Insider on Fri, 21 Feb 2020


A group of current and former McDonald's franchisees has retained a law firm to investigate allegations of discriminatory practices at the fast-food giant.At least 10 current and former minority franchise owners have retained counsel at the Ferraro Law Firm, James L. Ferraro, the president of the firm and lead attorney in the investigation, confirmed to Business Insider.The firm is currently investigating claims of discriminatory practices at McDonald's, a process which Ferraro said is likely to conclude in the next week or two. A claim could be filed after the investigation concludes.Previous reporting by Business Insider's Kate Taylor found that there are significant disparities between McDonald's black franchisees and the rest of the system."We are not aware of, and unable to provide comment on a potential filing," a McDonald's spokesperson said in a statement. "It is McDonald's core belief that diversity and an inclusive and respectful workplace makes us stronger, and as a franchised business, the success of our organization depends on all franchisees succeeding. The company has a proud history spanning across decades of creating significant opportunities for entrepreneurship and economic growth for small business owners across the country, including McDonald's franchisees of many diverse backgrounds."Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.At least 10 current and former minority McDonald's franchisees have retained counsel at the Ferraro Law Firm, which is currently in the process of investigating allegations ofdiscriminatory practices at the fast-food giant.James L.
