A recent Ontario appeal court decision is very important for every Canadian franchisee.
First time ever. Read it here:
- Appeal Court decision: Salah v. Timothy’s Coffees of the World Inc., 2010
- Trial Court decision: Salah v. Timothy’s Coffees of the World Inc., 2009
Suddenly the economics of pleading good faith has tipped significantly in franchisees’ favour, not just in Ontario but beyond Canada as well..
Some systems have 50, 100 or 1,000 franchisees.
You do the math of the aggregate value of a group or class action lawsuit.
You still need protection against choosing the wrong attorney but great news this fall.
Kudos: First franchisee call-out on internet:
