Chipotle Mexican Grill has reached a $20 million settlement with New York City — the largest of its kind — to resolve fair scheduling and sick leave violations affecting 13,000 current and former employees.

The deal announced Tuesday affects anyone who worked for the fast-casual restaurant chain in the city from November 2017 to this past April. They are eligible for $50 for each week of work. Current employees will be sent a check, but those who left their positions before April 30 must file a claim to collect. Chipotle also will pay another $1 million in civil penalties.

New York Mayor Eric Adams said Chipotle violated the city’s Fair Workweek Law, which took effect in November 2017. The measure requires employers to give workers their schedules 14 days in advance and pay premiums for schedule changes or shifts with less than 11 hours of rest in between. It also requires large employers like Chipotle to offer 56 hours of paid leave each year.

It’s the largest fair workweek settlement in the nation and the biggest labor protection settlement in the city’s history, Adams said Tuesday.
