Stay abreast of the most current state employment laws in New Mexico.
Many small and midsize businesses struggle to keep up with the developments and requirements of state employment laws. They fail to properly classify and pay employees, they fail to recognize and address discrimination and harassment in the workplace, and they fail to properly handle employee medical related issues.

This content also explains the requirements of the New Mexico Human Rights Act and provides proven methods for preventing and addressing sexual discrimination and harassment claims.
