The Arizona Civil Rights Act prohibits discrimination based on national origin (AZ Rev. Stat. Sec. 41-1401 et seq.).
Employment practices that affect immigrants who are legally eligible for employment may constitute discrimination based on national origin. The Act applies to employers with 15 or more employees, employment agencies, and labor organizations.
Citizenship requirements that are a condition of employment discriminate based on national origin and are in violation of state law. Inquiries about a person's citizenship or country of birth are also unlawful and imply discrimination based on national origin.
