Chipotle Sued by NYC Violating Fair Workweek Law

As reported by the New York Times on Sept 10, 2019:

New York City filed suit against the fast-food company for violating the city’s Fair Workweek Law.

Steve Vidal had worked at Chipotle Mexican Grill in Brooklyn for two years, moving from burrito folder to service manager, when he finally decided to quit last summer.

He said he grew frustrated of last-minute changes to his schedule, of managers retaliating against employees who complained by cutting their hours and of a murky sick-leave policy that left him wondering how to get his paid time off.

Mr. Vidal was one of more than 30 current or former Chipotle employees in the area who complained about working conditions at the restaurant to the city and to 32BJ SEIU, a local union trying to organize fast-food workers.

On Tuesday, after investigating the complaints, New York announced that it was suing the company for violating the city’s Fair Workweek Law.
