Court House Capital funds class action against McDonald’s

Court House Capital is funding a class action in Australia against McDonald’s over the company’s alleged failure to provide its employees with paid 10-minute rest breaks.

Under the McDonald’s Australia Enterprise Agreement 2013 (EBA) and the Fast Food Industry Award 2010 (Award), McDonald’s and its franchisees operating McDonald’s restaurants across Australia, are required to provide McDonald’s workers a paid 10-minute break for shifts between four and nine hours, and two 10 minute paid breaks for shifts longer than 9 hours.

Shine Lawyers, with the support of Retail and Fast Food Workers Union (RAFFWU) has filed a class action on behalf of McDonald’s employees who were not given a paid 10 minute break when working a shift of four hours or more. The class action alleges McDonald’s operated a system of work which operated to deny workers their right to paid breaks in breach of the EBA and the Award.
