Celebrity chef Mario Batali and his partner, Joe Bastianich, have agreed to pay $1.15 million to settle a lawsuit filed by employees at their New York restaurant, Del Posto.

As part of the settlement, the workers will receive five paid vacation days and three paid sick days at minimum wage per year.
