An acquaintance was employed at a casino operated by an Indian tribe. He was fired for what would be a discriminatory reason if he were employed by a non-reservation employer.
My question is, which US laws apply on an Indian Reservation? Does social legislation like the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Act), ADA (Americans with Disability Act) or Voting Right Act or even the Social Security Act apply?
If a reservation exists within a state's boundaries, does that state's law apply?
Does it make a difference if a Tribe is operating the casino on non-tribal land?
I am abashed to realize that my sole frame of reference are old Toni Hillerman crime novels.
Thanks for any information shared.
