    11 Attorney Generals Seek Info on Fast Food 'No-Poach' Agreements

    Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey is leading a coalition of 11 Democratic state attorneys general seeking information about "no-poach" agreements meant to block employees from leaving one fast food franchise to work for another franchise in the same chain.

    Healey says Monday the agreements limit the ability of low-wage workers to seek promotions and earn a better living.

    The attorneys general say 80 percent of fast food franchisors have no-poach agreements.

    The attorneys general have sent a letter to Arby's, Burger King, Dunkin' Donuts, Five Guys Burgers and Fries, Little Caesars, Panera Bread, Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen and Wendy's seeking copies of franchise agreements by Aug. 6.
