HOUSTON, Tx. -- If you're looking for a job in fast food, then make sure you read the fine print. Especially at Jimmy John's!

Apparently by signing the application, an employee agrees not to work at any of the sandwich chain's competitors for two years and at any other business near the location that derives 10 percent of its revenue from sandwiches.

Now that non-compete is part of a proposed class action suit against the chain. Add that to another lawsuit that alleges wage theft for making employees work off the clock and there's a lot of meat to this litigation.

We reached out to see what the fast food company had to say, but Jimmy John's had no comment at this time.
