Popular Mexican food chain Chipotle has agreed to pay $400,000 to three former workers in Washington state and provide additional relief to settle a sexual harassment lawsuit, according to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

The lawsuit, filed in Seattle, charged Chipotle with violating Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 following incidents that occurred between October 2019 and June 2020 at Chipotle’s Sammamish restaurant. The suit claims the company allowed a 17-year-old employee to be sexually harassed by their manager and another co-worker.
