Racial discrimination is illegal in Arkansas under the U.S. constitution and Title VII of the U.S. Code.

Federal investigations of workplace discrimination are conducted by the agency called the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Employees who are victims of discrimination are required to file their claim with the EEOC before filing suit in a court of law.
