The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has set forth a model plan to help Indian tribes partner with the EEOC in an effort to combat employment discrimination. The model is called the Model Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). This memo can be entered into by EEOC District Offices and individual Indian tribes. Each MOU allows the EEOC and the individual tribe to coordinate investigations, share information and provide training to end employment discrimination.

Currently, the law stands to protect people from discriminatory hiring. Federal and state laws which include Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 have been enacted to prevent employers from unfairly discriminating against job candidates and employees. These laws also protect people from retaliation for filing a charge of discrimination. According to the United States Department of Labor, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is enforced by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
