Arkansas is an employer-friendly state. For example, state law grants immunity to current and former employers when providing references with a current or former employee's written consent. However, there are certain laws that benefit employees. An example of this is an employer that has nine or more employees may not discriminate against an employee based on several protected characteristics – under federal law, discrimination laws apply to an employer with 15 or more employees.
