Maxcimo Scott et al. vs. Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc.

Chipotle was alleged to have misclassified apprentice employees as exempt from overtime pay. Plaintiffs said their duties were similar to those of hourly non exempt employees and they should have been paid for overtime hours. A class of current and former apprentice employees was proposed. Dr. Johnson was retained to analyze commonality for the class certification issues and estimate damages.
