One thought on “Lawsuits Allege Chipotle Violated Labor Standards on Pay, Overtime Eligibility

  1. I had a similar (far worse, actually) issue with my employer (Penrose Hospital, Colorado Springs). They too, make a big deal out of their “7 values” – Compassion, imagination, Integrety, spirituality, and so on. I had recently had a very good performance review and had just completed training to be a “mentor” to new-hire nurses. I came down with a bad gall bladder and was scheduled for surgery in my employer’s facility. The Penrose surgeon botched the operation, I became septic and was in a coma for three weeks. I came as close to death as a human being can. After waking up, I spent four more weeks re-learning how to walk and eventually staggered home on a walker. The day before I was discharged from hospital, I was informed I was to be FIRED, “because I could no longer do the work”! benefits, including my family’s health insurance, would cease in one month. Through-out my post-coma haze, I had made the assumption that this religious non-profit would follow those values and take care of me as I slowly recovered from their surgical mishap. I was incredibly mistaken. They have never apologised or done anything in the way of compensation for my financial losses or loss of health. Several years on, I am now on Social Security Disability and did start getting Medicare four years post injury. Had I been working for a corporation such as Chipotle, I might have been more on my guard. Receiving a life-changing screwing from Centura/Sisters of Charity was a true surprise! I did talk to an employment lawyer and was informed that what transpired WAS legal! One of my RN peers at the hospital received a similar charitable heave-ho after coming down with breast cancer. I can only laugh these days when the Penrose commercials come on these days. As I put it: “The sisters have been replaced by the suits.”
