Papa John’s May Be Restricting Employees’ Earning Potential with No Poaching Agreements E-mail
January 10, 2019

Papa Johns allegedly prevents employees from growth potential, per no poaching agreements. 

We are investigating allegations against Papa John’s, and fellow franchisees from the same company, for supposedly restricting its employees’ earning potential with “no poaching agreements.” The “no poaching agreements”, usually signed between the Papa John’s franchises or between the franchise and the corporate headquarters, purportedly prohibit one Papa John’s franchisee from hiring anyone from another franchisee. Such agreements allegedly restrict competition and may hurt Papa John’s employees by suppressing their wages, hindering their opportunities for benefits, and preventing job growth.
