Employment Law Update in New Mexico

November 12

Stay abreast of the most current state employment laws in New Mexico.

Small and midsize businesses struggle to keep up with the developments and requirements of state employment laws. The New Mexico Legislature has enacted new laws that will impact all employers, including adjustments to the state minimum wage, addressing issues related to marijuana and the workplace, and providing for mandatory paid sick leave. This topic helps human resource professionals, managers, supervisors, and small business owners understand and comply with New Mexico wage and hour laws. This material also explains the limited job protections afforded to medical marijuana users and provides employers with the tools to enact and implement an effective drug testing policy without violating state law. Finally, this information provides an overview of the new paid sick leave law that will go into effect next year. This topic will be a valuable resource for professionals seeking to stay abreast of the most current state employment laws.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to describe the protections of the New Mexico Human Rights Act.
  • You will be able to identify when marijuana users are entitled to job protection.
  • You will be able to recognize when employees are entitled to accrue and use paid sick leave.
  • You will be able to develop leave policies that comply with the new paid sick leave law.
