I too have been wronged and ripped off by Jani King. I have purchased a franchise years ago, and have seem to have had issues with them on & off for years.
Specifically, about 3 or 4 years ago with Richard Boyd when they hired my employees behind my back and took my contracts back from me. They also after promising me and making arangements with me to sell me a contract that i was doing, they then sold it to someone else instead.
Recently however, they said there were complaints about a large contract i had and they told one of my employees that i was fired!( told me later...imagine that!) That started the whole ball rolling again...

I was locked out from taking my own equipment and supplies that i purchased, and later given pages of "bills" and "charges" from them. I am still waiting for a meeting with whoever they decided on the day that needs to be there, this is a week now and nothing even remotely close to being settled.
They again took a contract from me and hired my employee behind my back --even though my employee was the one cleaning the contract they took from me.
Through the months of having this large contract i had to take advances from them since i was not even making enough to cover my payroll.
Again another issue since they wanted me to keep on people that were cleaning at that contract before i took it. I kept these people on, which was a big mistake since jani king would have them to things for them directly and i was the one paying them.
As a small business owner if this contract kept going i would have been in the poor house. They charge people what they want and when they want and you just have to accept it. Their fees are unclear and their charges to them are constant!
I need to take my action further and anyone else in the area can feel free to contact me.

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

I know that!

AUTHOR: Sucker In Nova Scotia - (Canada)

What really gets me is that at the same time Richard Boyd is plundering franchisee staff at his leisure GOD HELP ANYONE who approaches one of his many unhappy employees with an offer. Richard told me to my face that he would fire both myself and his unhappy employee should that person leave Richards building! This is the double standard you're always going to be up against with a Master Franchise whose only concern is lining their own pockets with contract money. They are playing fast and loose with the law with contracts much smarter people have drawn up for them ensuring their success at the expence of the poor franchisees who have been lured in. You are not alone. My prayers are with you and I will monitor your situation on the board. If there is anything I can do to help do not hesitate to ask.
