Just Cause Discipline for Fast Food Workers in NYC

The New York City Council recently passed a bill (Int. 1415-A) that limits when a fast food employer can discharge a fast food worker, only permitting terminations for “just cause” or a  “bona fide economic reason.” The new law takes effect on July 4, 2021. It adds new sections to the previously passed Fair Workweek Law (the FWW), utilizing and building upon the enforcement mechanisms provided to New York City’s Department of Workplace and Consumer Protection (DCWP). The new law allows discharged fast food workers to take their case to arbitration or to bring a lawsuit. What do workers, unions, and employers need to know?
