Subway Cooperates with Wage and Hour Regulators

by Categorized: Uncategorized Date:

The Subway chain, headquartered in Milford, will use its reach in corporate training to educate independent franchisees around the country about the importance of complying with minimum wage and overtime laws.

The U.S. Department of Labor lauded the chain’s efforts to increase compliance with labor laws in a press release Wednesday.

“Too often, franchisors ignore compliance issues among their independently owned franchised locations,” said acting Secretary of Labor Seth D. Harris. “This company’s efforts illustrate both a commitment to the integrity of its brand and to the well-being of Subway restaurant employees nationwide.”

Federal employees have presented at several Subway annual meetings and have written articles for the chain’s weekly newsletter.

For more information about wage and hour laws, call the division’s toll-free number at 866-4US-WAGE (487-9243). Information is also available at http://www.dol.gov/whd.
