A lawsuit filed in Colorado alleges that Chipotle employees were required to work without pay in order to meet corporate labor budgets, 7News reported. The company is accused of violating the Fair Labor Standards Act for its unwritten policy that encouraged managers to require off-the-clock work.

Bachus & Schanker, the law firm representing 13 employees from Colorado, Minnesota, California, Arizona and New Jersey, stated that Chipotle employees had to clock out "before they finished working, resulting in non-payment of regular wages or overtime wages."
