Firm resolves religious discrimination and reprisal claims against Chipotle
In May 2018, our client resolved claims against Chipotle following a determination by the District of Columbia Office of Human Rights finding good cause to believe that he had been discriminated against based upon his religion, and fired in reprisal for raising concerns about this discrimination. Chipotle had refused to provide our client, who is a practicing Muslim, with paid break time to pray during the work day. When our client raised concerns about this decision, he was immediately fired. Julia Quinn and Richard Salzman represented the client in proceedings before the District of Columbia Commission on Human Rights which lead to the resolution of his claims.
