Definition: Franchisee

ILO terminology

Franchisees are workers who have explicit or implicit contracts with the owners of certain means of production (land, buildings, machinery, trade marks, etc.), holders of operational licences or suppliers of credit, which to a significant extent determine how the business is operated and require the payment of a specific part of total sales. Franchisees who engage "employees" on a continuous basis should be classified as "employers".
