7-Eleven Australia continues to attract media attention for all the wrong reasons. Since the Four Corners expose in August 2015 the company has lurched from one public relations disaster to another. The latest episode has the independent panel hired to clean up the mess being terminated with allegations that the company was scared that the compensation scheme would become too expensive. It’s not just workers that are looking for compensation, franchisees are arranging a class action against the company and banks including ANZ over loans made to support franchise purchases.
