Chipotle Faces Overtime Pay Suit

Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. faces a unpaid overtime suit from an employee who claims the restaurant chain did not pay for extra hours put in by hundreds of employees.

The Associated Press (AP) reports that a class-action complaint filed in federal court in New York alleges that the Denver-based Chipotle misclassified the "apprentices" working there as managerial, salaried employees who were not qualified for overtime pay.

According to the AP, the lawsuit asserts that apprentices earning $40,000 at Chipotle often work more than 40 hours a week to perform duties of hourly workers like cooking and filling orders. The lawsuit demands back pay and damages for the class.
