June 27, 2016

—By Jason B. Hirsh and Christina E. Lutz, Levenfeld Pearlstein LLC

Jimmy Johns is known for "Subs So Fast You’ll Freak." But thanks to Brunner v. Jimmy John's LLC, it’s also become known as a poster child for a national debate over the merits of non-compete agreements imposed on its sandwich makers. Jason Hirsh and Christina Lutz recently wrote an article for Law 360 that analyzes the Brunner case and the larger economic concerns tied to prohibiting Jimmy John's employees from seeking employment at other food service establishments.
