Recently, two former employees of the chain restaurant Chiptle Mexican Grill filed a lawsuit against their previous employer maintaining their wages were never paid in an appropriate fashion. You can check online to know about legislation, rules, and regulations used for immigration.
These former employers, who are just a rare of hundreds that were fired by Chipotle after an immigration audit in Minnesota, are looking for class action status. The lawsuit states that Chipotle broke Minnesota state law when they did not immediately pay the former employees their earned compensation.
Chipotle is currently showing a similar audit of their restaurants located in Virginia and Washington, D.C. The co-CEO of Chipotle states the corporation has learned from their mistakes in Minnesota, and that this type of trial will not happen again.
With the U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency cracking down on Chipotle, this is sending a message to America’s restaurant industry and separate immigrants all throughout the USA. Expect the larger population centers (think Los Angeles, New York, Dallas/Fort Worth, etc.) to be in the crosshairs of ICE
If you are an immigrant, the best way to avoid any legal hassles is to hire an immigration lawyer. Although there is no rule requiring the use of an attorney to handle immigration claims or lawsuits, most people do not have the capability, patience or attention to detail required to properly complete and submit an immigration application.
