July 27, 2022

The International Franchise Association (IFA) today released the following statement on the nomination of Jessica Looman to the Wage and Hour Division at the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL): 

“IFA congratulates Jessica Looman on her nomination to be Administrator of the Wage and Hour Division at the Department of Labor," said Matthew Haller, IFA President and CEO. "In recent weeks, our members have had productive conversations with Acting Administrator Looman about the essential role that franchising plays in our economy and why it is critical that the Department of Labor serves to enforce existing law rather than create new policy. We look forward to working together to ensure that the franchise business model is treated fairly, so it can continue to create opportunities in every community around the country.”
