State v. Goel Enterprises, Inc. (sex/retaliation)

Date: 
June, 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 Defendant Goel Enterprises, Inc.'s ("Defendant") supervisory employee, Frank De La Ossa, engaged in unwelcome sexual conduct toward Charging Party Marissa Lechuga that constitutes an unlawful employment practice in violation of the Arizona Civil Rights Act, Arizona Revised Statute § 41-1463(B)(l). The State also brings this action to redress the injury sustained by Marissa Lechuga when Defendant retaliated against her for opposing De La Ossa's unlawful employment practice by adversely altering her pay structure in violation of the Arizona Civil Rights Act, Arizona Revised Statute § 41-1464(A) and constructively discharging from her employment.
