Things aren't getting any easier for Chipotle Mexican Grill.
A U.S. District Court jury in Washington, D.C., awarded a former employee of the burrito chain $550,000 after determining that she was fired by her manager for being pregnant, according to the Washington Business Journal.
According to the lawsuit, after Doris Garcia Hernandez told her manager that she was pregnant, he restricted her access to water and bathroom breaks and would not allow her to leave work early to attend a pre-natal doctor's appointment.
"[He] did not impose these requirements on non-pregnant employees," the original lawsuit stated, according to the Washington Business Journal.
Hernandez was later fired after leaving for her doctor's appointment without her manager's permission, according to the suit.
"We are grateful to the jury for vindicating the rights of our client to be free from pregnancy discrimination and to send a message to other employers that this practice is intolerable," Jonathan Smith, executive director of the Washington Lawyers' Committee, told the journal.
Representatives for Chipotle did not immediately respond to CNBC's request for comment.
