BREAKING: $500,000 settlement for Chicago Burger King workers denied paid sick leave

In a landmark win for workers, Burger King will pay almost 2,500 Chicago workers a total of nearly $500,000 for alleged violations of the city’s paid sick leave law.

A city investigation found that Tri City Foods, which operates 40 Chicago-area franchises, failed to give workers their required sick leave for over three years.

These alleged violations at a large corporate fast food chain wouldn’t have been known if workers hadn’t spoken up. As a result, these workers will begin seeing payments over the next few weeks.
