Arizona Civil Rights Laws

Civil rights are the rights of individuals to be treated as equals under the law, which includes freedom from discrimination in employment. Most civil rights laws are federal, including those encoded in the Civil Rights Act of 1964, but states sometimes extend extra protections.

In addition to federal protections, Arizona's civil rights laws also make attorney's fees recoverable by plaintiffs.

Below you will find Arizona-specific laws on civil rights in various different contexts, including whether private civil rights actions are permitted, applicable statutes of limitations, and pertinent code provisions. See FindLaw's Civil Rights section to learn more.
