State v. SW General, Inc. (race)

June, 2008

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 SW General, Inc., a subsidiary of Rural/Metro Corporation, d/b/a Southwest Ambulance ("Southwest Ambulance") discriminated against Nairi Cornejo by creating a hostile work environment because of her national origin and by retaliating against her when she opposed conduct which she reasonably perceived to be discrimination in violation of the Arizona Civil Rights Act, A.R.S. § 41-1463(B) and 41-1464(A).
