Lawsuit alleges Chipotle Mexican Grill owes workers and New York City nearly $500 million for violating Fair Work Week law

Melanie Wong | May 9, 202110:00 PM    

" . . . The lawsuit alleges that Chipotle committed 599,693 violations of the law, including failing to give scheduling pay premiums and failing to offer current workers shifts before hiring new workers. It estimates that each of the 6,500 workers employed by Chipotle in the city between November 2017 and September 2019 experienced at least one violation. It says each worker is, on average, owed around $23,061.

The suit also claims that Chipotle violated the law by preventing employees from calling out sick for covered reasons, requiring sick workers to find their own replacements and disciplining workers for calling out sick. . . "
