    GRN: Global Recruiters Network..
    My children and I have been ripped off
    by GRN corporate office. Illegal activities by Brad Baiocchi and my former spouse, as well as the collusion of numerous other high level corporate executives were perpetuated.
    Acts of fraud to include tax evasion and tax fraud… I have hard video evidence of illegal acts… which had an extreme negative impact on my children’s lives.
    I will be filing a federal lawsuit against GRN corporate office in the near future.. My case has the potential of class action status…

    Heber City, UT
    Dickey’s had banners displayed indicating the location was “under new management”. Shortly after that the place was closed. Approximate timeframe August 2017.

    Be aware that another group of four franchisees have filed another complaint/law suit against SEI (at least partially funded by the National Coalition) related to SEI violating the independent contractor status portion of the franchisee agreement, thereby in essence making the franchisee an employee and not independent.

    7-Eleven franchisees are no more business owners than slaves or sharecroppers were plantation owners.

    Imy son also attended “training” at learning rx. After a few weeks I chose to opt out of the program because I didn’t see results. The director pulled me into her office and “guaranteed” it would work and convinced me to stay that it would transform my son. Nope. Spent $9000. I am a single mother and they didn’t hesitate to take advantage! Shame!!

    After having a very bad personal experience with operating a franchise and hearing and reading stories from other franchisees abused by franchisors, we believe that there is a strong need to raise awareness and alarm prospective new franchise owners that there are franchisors who abuse the current legal system and a good reputation of franchise businesses to sell scams, and silence their victims by forcing them to sign confidentiality/non-interference agreements.

    1. All franchisors claim that they provide help in marketing, sales and training in business, which is extremely attractive for potential franchisees new to business. The typical franchise agreement, however, does not hold franchisors responsible for any of these. This enables the existence of scam franchises.
    2. Franchisees may be harassed and forced to operate their locations despite losses, or terminated on conditions extremely unfavorable to them that are often far worse than losing their own business.
    3. The current legal system disproportionately benefits corporations (franchisors) over small businesses and individuals (franchisees) and makes it extremely difficult, in many cases literally impossible for franchisees to litigate against franchisors. Franchisors have considerably more money than the franchisees and are able to use loopholes in the legal system to avoid having franchisees’ cases against them go to court.
    4. Confidentiality and non-interference agreements, which franchisees are forced to sign as part of disengagement/termination agreements, are used to cover up franchisors’ unethical and sometimes illegal actions, and leave franchisees with no way to retaliate or warn others without putting themselves and their families at risks of being sued by franchisors.
    5. These agreements allow franchisors to literally erase unsuccessful franchisees from franchise history, and by that create misleading statistics. This practice also make it possible for fraudulent franchisors to spread wrongful information about reasons of why locations were terminated and falsificate franchise disclosure documents.

    P.S. – since we were forced to sign confidentiality agreement we cannot provide a name or a category of a franchise we operated (it is not present in the list of franchises on your website); we also don’t seek any financial compensation of our personal losses. We contacted you for the purpose of raising a public awareness of the issue which, if would be left unnoticed, will cause huge financial damages and psychological suffering of many new victims. We would like to propose measures which could help to solve this issue and would be happy to discuss them with you.

    Thank you
