Individual states can adopt additional laws. Various states have done just that – requiring the filing of the Uniform Franchise Registration Application, paying of filing fees, providing notice of intent to sell franchises, to name just a few. Some states have also passed “relationship laws” that regulate the relationship between the franchisor and its franchisee. Recently, there have been some new developments among certain states adopting laws that would regulate the franchise agreements and relationships in Alabama and Washington.
