Fitapelli & Schaffer filed a class and collective action against Chipotle Mexican Grill, a “fast casual” restaurant chain with over 1300 locations nationwide.  The lawsuit alleges that Chipotle failed to pay their Apprentices and Assistant Managers proper overtime compensation by misclassifying them as exempt from the overtime provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act and the New York Labor Laws.  We allege that Salaried Apprentices performed the same work as hourly employees, primarily working the food line.  This lawsuit seeks to recover unpaid overtime pay for the hours worked in excess of forty per workweek, as well as liquidated damages, interest and attorneys’ fees.  Fitapelli & Schaffer has represented hundreds of employees with similar claims.  If you work or worked at Chipotle as an Apprentice or Assistant Manager within the past 3 years, please contact the employment lawyers at Fitapelli & Schaffer to discuss joining the case.  For additional information, please visit our case website at
