Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Is Investigating Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. - CMG17:00 EDT Thursday, June 09, 2011 NEW YORK (Business Wire) -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading New York securities firm, is investigating the Board of Directors and Officers of Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. (“Chipotle” or the “Company”) (NYSE: CMG). The investigation focuses on possible breaches of fiduciary duties by the Board of Directors and/or Officers of the Company in connection with allegations that the Company hired illegal immigrants. Request more information now by clicking here: Specifically, following an inspection during 2010 by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (“DHS”) of the work authorization documents of the Company's restaurant employees in Minnesota, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement arm of DHS (“ICE”) issued to the Company a Notice of Suspect Documents identifying a large number of employees who, according to ICE, appeared not to be authorized to work in the U.S. The immigration probe resulted in the Company firing more than 400 hundred employees in Minnesota. The ICE's investigation was subsequently expanded and in March, Chipotle fired at least 40 workers in Washington, D.C., after ICE collected documents for an audit in Virginia and Washington. In April 2011, the Company also received a notice from the office of the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia that it is conducting an investigation into these matters through its criminal division.
