October, 2009

This is an action brought under the Arizona Civil Rights Act to correct an unlawful employment practice, to provide appropriate relief to an aggrieved person, and to vindicate the public interest. Specifically, the State brings this matter to redress the injury sustained because Defendants Frito-Lay, Inc., and Frito-Lay North America, Inc. (collectively, "Frito-Lay") discriminated against Shelly Reyes ("Ms. Reyes") by subjecting her to hostile work environment because of her sex (female) and/or race (Caucasian) and by subjecting her to different terms and conditions of employment, including threatened termination, demotion and reduction in pay, because of her sex (female) and/or race (Caucasian). A.R.S. § 41-1463(B)(1) & (2).
