Colorado workers sue Chipotle, following national trend of worker labor lawsuits


With the motto “Food With Integrity,” Chipotle Mexican Grill’s brand is based on ethical fast food.

Hundreds of workers in nine lawsuits in six states allege the company’s moral high-ground on pork, beef and chicken doesn’t extend to its cooks, cashiers and managers.

The lawsuits share common allegations: Denver-based Chipotle cheated employees out of pay by making them work off the clock or misclassifying them to avoid paying overtime.

One in Colorado alleges hourly employees were automatically clocked out even though they were still working. The largest lawsuit underway alleges managers-in-training known as “apprentices” are actually glorified burrito rollers with minimal managerial responsibilities and should be entitled to overtime pay.
