This is an ongoing investigation into the business practises of companies claiming to offer third party franchises to there cleaning and janitorial businesses. Our investigation to date has led to multiple class action lawsuits.
Coverall North America, JaniKing, JanPro and CleanNet each claim to have unique cleaning supplies and services and each company seeks third parties to buy franchises with their company. Evidence indicates that each compay systemically misrepresents marketing and seling franchises by guaranteeing certain monthly income to unsuspecting third parties. Additionally, evidence suggests that these third party franchisees are in fact properly classsified as empoyees and are therefore afforded stronger rights and protections from US labor laws.
