SEC Joins Probe of Chipotle Hiring Practices

Mexican Grill Inc received a subpoena from the Securities and Exchange
Commission as part of an expanding investigation into its alleged hiring
of undocumented workers.  The Denver-based company fired
about 500 employees more than a year ago following audits by the
Department of Homeland Security's Immigration and Customs Enforcement
(ICE) arm.  Chipotle said on Friday
that it received the subpoena May 17 and that it intends to fully
cooperate with the SEC's investigation.  Homeland
Security and the criminal division of the U.S. Attorney's office for
Washington, D.C., already are conducting probes into the company's
compliance with immigration laws." – Reuters, May 18, 2012.
