McDonald's Faces Fine for Sabbath Violations
Owner of Israeli franchise reprimanded for employing a Jew on Sabbath.
Alionel Ltd., owner of the McDonald's franchise in Israel, was fined NIS (New Israeli Shekel) 30,000 for illegally having a youth work during Sabbath. The Tel Aviv Labour Court announced the decision on Thursday.
This would not be the first time that the franchise has committed the offence. In 2003, the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Labour filed a complaint against Alionel after finding out that a McDonald's chain owned by the company employed a Jewish youth on a Saturday. Under the Youth Employment Law, it is forbidden to have Jewish youth employees during Sabbath.
If Alionel repeats the offence in the next three years, it would be subjected to a fine worth NIS 52,000.
