A former employee at a Chipotle restaurant in Washington, D.C., says she was fired back in 2011 for being pregnant.
Now, five years later, a jury has found she was discriminated against by her ex-manager. And she's getting a pretty big payout because of it.
According to the lawsuit, which was obtained by the Washington Business Journal, the jury awarded Doris Garcia Hernandez $550,000 in damages after they found the manager, referred to only as David, fired her due to her pregnancy.
