Lawsuit: Domestic Violence Victim Status Discrimination Case Against Chipotle

Below is the federal court complaint, captioned Natasha Velez v. Chipotle Mexican Grill et al., 1:14-cv-02625, filed yesterday by plaintiff Natasha Velez against her former employer Chipotle.

Plaintiff alleges that she was fired after disclosing that she was a victim of domestic violence and showing her manager a recently-obtained order of protection against her assailant.

She seeks recovery under the New York State and City Human Rights Laws, which prohibit discrimination based on domestic violence victim status and disability.
