Employment Law Update in New Mexico

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 topic helps human resource professionals, managers, supervisors, and small business owners understand and comply with New Mexico wage and hour laws. 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. This material also provides employers with the tools to enact and implement an effective drug and alcohol testing policy and to address employee medical leave issues without violating state law. Failing to comply with the unique aspects of New Mexico state employment laws can expose employers to unnecessary risks of liability. This information will be a valuable resource for professionals seeking to stay abreast of the most current state employment laws.
