Will a franchisor provide me with advice on employment law?
Some franchisors may in their initial training programme provide an overview of what is required when a franchisee takes on the role of an employer, for example, making franchisees aware of the need to address issues such as national insurance. However, it is extremely unlikely that a franchisee can rely on its franchisor to give advice on any specific employment issues with any given employee or employees. This is because many franchisors will be cautious in giving such advice as they will want to avoid putting themselves in a situation where its franchisees may try to make a claim against it in the event that any advice it gives is incorrect or means that the franchisee incurs costs as a consequence of the advice. The nature of a franchisor/franchisee relationship is such that the franchisee operates as a separate business entity from the franchisor, either as an individual, partnership or company, and while a franchisor can be expected to give guidance on the day-to-day operation of the business the franchisee will be expected to deal with the more administrative issues of employing staff and running a partnership or company itself.
