State v. Sears, Roebuck & CO. (retaliation)

January, 2010

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 Sears, Roebuck & Co. retaliated against S. Michelle Baldenegro because she had previously opposed an unlawful employment practice or made a charge, testified, assisted and participated in an investigation conducted by the Arizona Civil Rights Division ("Division"), in violation of the Arizona Civil Rights Act, A.R.S. § 41-1464(A).
