Last week, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) opened its case against McDonald’s in court, claiming the quick-serve giant is liable for the actions of franchisees as a joint employer.

But the trial is not just about McDonald’s.

The outcome of the widely publicized legal case that’s trying to discern whether or not McDonald’s is ultimately responsible for the actions of its franchisees isn’t expected to be settled for two to three years, when most legal experts predict it will land in front of a newly formed Supreme Court.
