Chipotle took a reputation blow in Massachusetts for failing to follow child labor laws.  It was hit with more than 13,000 alleged violations.  Either restaurant managers didn’t know or didn’t care to follow the rules, and no one had headquarters was checking as well.  There might be an excuse for one or two mistakes.  There is little one can say about 13,000 except that it was a pattern of misbehavior.  The fine was large enough to make the company pay attention in the future — $1.3 million.  As the author of the article notes, it is not up to employees to know labor laws.  It is a manager’s job, and clearly, the managers weren’t doing it.  Now, Chipotle will have to be vigilant about scheduling teenagers, but it should have been doing that all along.
