New York City Mayor Eric Adams said Tuesday that Chipotle Mexican Grill will pay about 13,000 current and former Big Apple workers approximately $20 million in compensation over alleged violations of city labor laws.
Investigators said the Mexican fast-food chain failed to post work schedules two weeks in advance, pay a premium for schedule changes and offer available shifts to current employees before hiring new employees.
"Today’s settlement with Chipotle is not only a victory for workers by securing up to $20 million in relief for approximately 13,000 workers, but also sends a strong message, as the largest worker protection settlement in New York City history, that we won’t stand by when workers’ rights are violated," Adams said in a statement.
The mayor's office said the settlement is the largest fair workweek settlement nationwide and the largest worker protection settlement in city history.
