This would not be the first time that the franchise has committed the offense. In 2003, the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Labor 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 offense in the next three years, it would be subjected to a fine worth NIS 52,000 ($13,922).
