New Mexico Human Rights Act Prohibits Sexual Orientation Discrimination

0 Comment

Unfortunately, discrimination happens. Discrimination that violates statute, regulation or some other form of law violates the law and may entitle the individual in the protected class who has been the vicitim of discrimination to damages. The New Mexico Human Rights Act prohibits discrimination in employment and public accomodation on the basis of sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity (NM Stat. Sec. 28-1-1et seq.). “Sex discrimination” is defined in state regulations to include sexual harassment (NM Admin. Code Sec. 9.1.1.7). The Act applies to employers with four or more employees, except that discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity applies to employers with 15 or more employees.
